I didn't know they are different things. I've thought terminfo and
termcap are different interfaces to the same data.

So, what I'm talking about is the problem, that termcap for XTerm reports
for kh and @7 different values from those XTerm sends to the application.
Why they are different?

I think the database of termcap has to be updated to reflect the
behaviour of XTerm.

Bye, Jörg.
