Package: ncurses-base
Version: 5.7-1
Severity: normal


I'm in an XTerm (package version 237-1):

% echo $TERM
% infocmp -L G -Eo 'key_(home|end|up|down)=[^,]*'

but XTerm sends these sequences:

% read

They match the sequences defined for the linux console and comply with
the recommend “9.8. Keyboard configuration” of the Debian Policy:

% infocmp -L linux G -Eo 'key_(home|end|up|down)=[^,]*'

So you should change the terminfo for xterm otherwise some programs might
not work, because they expect wrong key sequences read from the terminfo.

Bye, Jörg.

But the applications jed and vi receive the strings:

Home: \E[1~
End: \E[4~

by the way, these codes come from a non-default setting

This was a good hint. I've found an old snippet in my .Xresources file.
After removing it, all works fine. So this wasn't a bug, but a failure
of mine.

sounds good (I got on the wrong track with the application-mode ;-)
