No, just a configuration mess! Basicly there are 2 different kind of
linux.keytab:key Home : "\E[1~"
linux.keytab:key End : "\E[4~"
vt100.keytab:key Home : "\E[H"
vt100.keytab:key End : "\E[F"
xterm in 3.3.6 used the linux bindings as default (see /etc/X11/Xresources/xterm
in unstable) Try Alt-F1 and cat<return><home><end>.
In 4.* xterm changed looks like it was deceided to be more 'vt100 emulation'.
To enhance confusion, konsoles default.Keytab despite called 'xterm (Xfree 4.x.x)'
still use 3.3.6 binding -> break home/end in mc (I've a real (well, real debian)
xterm.keytab but upstream did not comment on it).
Working on testing with X 4.1 using konsoles vt100 bindings mc works locally but
ssh to stable with X 3.3.6 -> mc ignores Home/End.
Switching to linux bindings breaks Home/End in mc on testing but slogin to
stable and run mc you have working Home/End.
So two 'solutions': Change keyboard settings in konsole depending if you work
on stable or unstable. Or hack a keytab file and and e.g., Key Home+Control
and Key End+Control to emit the second type of Home-End escape sequence.

To me vi is Zen. To use vi is to practice zen. Every command is
a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
You discover truth everytime you use it.
