You need to set TERM=xterm-debian (as I discovered today).
This was done because if you login to a debian box from another non-debian
system, and the debian box would assume "hey, it's xterm, it can do
color and has many other extensions" you'd end up with a messed-up display.
So you set TERM=xterm-debian to hint that you have an extended xterm.
