Subject: xvt: Home/End/Delete keys NonFunctionallyGood
Date: Fri, 30 Nov 2001 16:21:45 -0500
Package: xvt
Version: 2.1-13
Severity: normal

The home/end/delete keys don't work (backspace does)!

The only related thing I could find is this (in my .Xresources):
XTerm.VT100.Translations: #override ~Shift ~Ctrl ~Meta <Key>Home: string("\033OH")\n\
                                ~Shift ~Ctrl ~Meta <Key>End: string("\033OF")

Which has been there long enough that I no longer remember when/why I put
it there (there have been quite a few snafus regarding these keys in the
woody phase).
