Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-terminal

The main problem is that I cannot go to the start or end of file in mcedit.
But the problem is not in mcedit, it happens with other programs run in terminal too.

This is what I get when I retrieve key codes using gforth run in terminal:

: pkey key . begin key? while key . repeat ;

for Ctrl-Home and Home:
pkey 27 79 72 ok
pkey 27 79 72 ok

For Ctrl-End and End:
pkey 27 79 70 ok
pkey 27 79 70 ok

For comparison, for PgUp and Ctrl+PgUp I get:
pkey 27 91 53 126 ok
pkey 27 91 53 59 53 126 ok

The same problem on terminator; xterm does distinguish them.

terminator:
pkey 27 79 72 ok
pkey 27 79 72 ok

xterm:
pkey 27 91 72 ok
pkey 27 91 49 59 53 72 ok

I understand that nobody is willing to fix it immediately, but the problem still is.
