Are you using gpm?  (Have you use of the mouse in a tty?)  
If so then you need to make your mouse device in XF86Config-4
/dev/gpmdata, and in /etc/gpm.conf  make sure that repeat_type=raw 

If that gives no joy post up your XF86Config-4 file.  

As for editors - dangerous question! - doesn't emacs21 come with Debian

But whatever you do DON'T abandon Debian again - this is curable!
