Description Preston Brown 1999-03-29 16:17:41 UTC
with the newer XFree86 xterm terminfo settings,
gnome-terminal is often screwing up, and going into inverse
video mode, when fullscreen applications are used (emacs,
less, etc.).  Also, the keysyms for gnome-terminal such as
home and end match the linux console, NOT xterm.  So it
really shouldn't be setting TERM=xterm at all unless this is

Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 1999-03-30 16:38:59 UTC
Fixed this problem, looking into other control codes that zvt
doesn't handle correctly from new xterm ncurses entry.
