Description of problem:
The <Home> and <End> keys in Less should take you to the beginning and
end of a document respectively just as the <g> and <G> keys do.
Rather, <Home> and <End> seem to be non-functioning.
It looks like the Less man page and the Less web site both claim that
<Home> and <End> should work as described above.
I believe that in FC1 these keys did work correctly but now that FC2
has taken its place there's no way for me to check for certain.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Less in a console
2.Attempt to go to the start or end of a document using <Home> or
Actual Results: <Home> and <End> are non-functioning
Expected Results: <Home> and <End> should function the same as the
<g> and <G> keys and navigate to the beginning and end of the document.
I should add that this only happens in Gnome-terminal and xterm, not a
full screnn console.
looks like a regression in ncurses-5.4. A downgrade to ncurses-5.3
