AFAICT, vim has the same problem. Currently, you can make it work correctly
only in one of xterm/console. If you "repair" one, the other will fail. This
is very annoying.

If your proposal manages to get this to work, I am all for it. BTW, this is
really a policy issue and should probably be moved to debian-policy. Also,
was it now one of hamm's release objectives to have a working and
consistent keyboard configuration?
