Description of problem:
I have Red Hat 7.3 installed, I have OpenSSH running. I had just 
gotten an update from RHN, and when I logged in from my windows computer with
Putty, the Home, End, Delete, Page Up, and Page Down keys put a tilde up instead
of the usual function. I can't tell you which package made the change because I
can't narrow it down, but I can tell you that it is one of the packages that was
downloaded because I reinstalled linux, and it worked fine untill I got the
updates. Please shed some light on my problem, if there is any more information
required please let me know, I would really like to get this fixed, it may help
other people out as well. Thank you for your time, and great software.

I'm sorry, the Home key does not dut up a tilde, it puts teh cursor at the start
of the line.

I just found out that not only does this happen through putty, but also in a
Konsole window
