missing key bindings in mutt

User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 (Linux 2.4.22-1.2061.nptl i686; U) Opera 7.11 [en]
Description of problem:
Default mutt keybindings have <end> as the 'jump to end of message' command.
This works with mutt-1.4-10; it doesn't work with 1.4.1-4.
Instead, I get "Key is not bound. Press '?' for help."
If I do that, I find in the help:
<End> bottom jump to the bottom of the message
The binding for <Home> ('jump to top of the message') also appears to be
This is with the default /etc/Muttrc as well as with my lightly customized one.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a long message in mutt
2. press <end>
Actual Results: Error message - Key is not bound. Press '?' for help.
Expected Results: Jumping to the end of the message.

This works for me OK with 1.4.1-4. What sort of terminal are you running in?
I was using konsole (kdebase-3.1.3-7), but I've just tried it with aterm and
xterm, and they both have the same difficulty. (xterm-179-5; aterm is 0.4.2 but
obviously not a Fedora package.)
Hm, it works for me with xterm as well.
Well, if I get the mutt-1.4-10 source RPM from Shrike, build it, and install it
instead of 1.4.1-4, the keybindings work.
Rebuilt 1.4.1-4 still doens't work. (I can't imagine that would change
anything; I'm using essentially stock Severn 2, with the exception of some added
minor utilities like aterm and hddtemp.)
I don't think there's anything actually odd about my keyboard; it's an IBM space
saver, so no numeric keypad, but so far as I know all the key codes are
I have the same problem, using 1.4.1-6. Using gnome-terminal or xterm,
I get "key not bound" errors when trying to use home or end (though
page up and page down still work). However, if I ssh into the Fedora
Core 2 machine from a Fedora Core 1 machine, those keys work. If, on
the FC2 machine, I switch to a text mode console, it works there too.
Also, if I set my TERM entry to "linux" instead "xterm," the home/end
keybindings work again too.
I had this problem also in RedHat 7, it was fixed in 8, but now it's back.
I think that problem is maybe ncurses and/or gnome-terminal related,
I'm currently not able to reproduce that problem.
It's possibly curses-related, but I don't believe it's gnome-terminal
related, this is happening under regular xterm as well.
I script for mutt now that essentially runs "TERM=linux /usr/bin/mutt"
and that works, though I have the natural feeling that shouldn't be
Oh, this is definitely ncurses/gnome-terminal related.
