I have the symptoms of this bug, yet am fully updated. I upgraded from 10.04 Xubuntu to 10.10 Xubuntu. When I type 'env' in my terminal, it says that TERM=linux. This messes things up with vim, less and man when using the home and end keys (and arrow keys). It seems that the fix in libvte is not working for me, the variable is set again on a later stage, overwriting the fix.
It's a problem on xfce4-terminal as well as on a TTY. I can't find anything in my user profile that links to this variable, so it has to be set globally somewhere. Where is this variable set and how can I change it to xterm?
