Yes, I forgot that when you leave the keymap alone, you need to use
xmodmap. Paradoxically, if you remap the keys, the keys will be ok in
X. I believe this is the X consortiums work, they have had some
discussions about the keys as well:-)

Allright, we're really getting somewhere! I didn't know about this way
of telling pine about the keys. To fix pico, you may want to try 
'pico -d', it may just work. The problem with pico made me disregard
method 2 too early I guess. This may save us a lot of work. BTW, I
think the configuration stuff on the page can still be used, with only
minor changes at a few places (if we succeed a rewrite will be
inevitable though:-)
