It may be fixed in potato, but there is *still* an xterm/terminfo
mismatch in woody.

Left to it's own devices, xterm produces \E[1~ for Home \E[3~ for Del
and \E[4~ for End, which is how the xterm/xterm-debian terminfo defines
khome/kdch1/kend (and how the linux terminfo does too).

The /etc/X11/Xresources/xterm overrides however *change* Home and End to
produce values which match the old slink terminfo, not the current one.
