Sounds like a possible reason to use RXVT... never noticed that it's
broken in xterm as I've been using RXVT since before I moved to
Debian. However, I did just try it on my (mostly) Sarge system and
Home and End work just fine in xterm *shrug*
A non-problemo for me. I didn't even realize those keys were supposed to
work! Now what's wrong with Ctrl-A and Ctrl-E?
Nothing, unless you were born and raised on home and end instead. For me
personally ^a and ^e are non-intuitive. BTW, you can configure libreadline in
/etc/inputrc so that bash will use those keys.
