The only problem I don't understand is why you consider it a bug. The
interface for the same program must be the same on every bloody Unix, and
that's what we're trying to make, a Unix, no a home PC OS like M$-DOS.
Think about the people who login into Linux boxen from NCD displays which
have Delete mapped to delete previous characters. And, as Richard said,
why not consider Y for printing in pine a bug, too?
