The following patch will let Xvt react correctly to the key strokes

   * Home and End.
   * On VT100 keypad: Home, End, Del, and all arrow keys.

In addition, the keys Insert, PageUp, PageDown, also on the kaypad,
will produce correct ASCII sequences, but their expected functionality
must await further alterations of the relevant C-code.

Best regards,
