Description Hans de Goede 2002-12-29 10:38:56 EST
Description of problem:
konsole sends 2x escape for alt + cursor/home/end keys

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kdebase-3.1-0.9

How reproducible:
Konsole prefixes all key-sequences with an esc when alt (meta) is pressed. This
is right for normal keys but wrong for keys which already send esc-sequences
(cursor keys, function keys).

Prefixing an esc-sequence with an esc leads to 2 esc's in one sequence 2 esc's
normally is seen as an abort try:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start mcedit in konsole
2. type something
3. press alt left or alt right or alt F6, etc 
    
Actual results:
Save on quit yes/no/cancel

Expected results:
dunno, maybe go word left go word right (this happens in bash) but not the quit
dialog box

Additional info:
This is related to konsole not doing anything with other modifier keys for the
cursor keys. I'll put this in a seperate bug.

This also bites vi, joe, mc itself and probably other apps. Anyways just like
bug 63473 its just plain wrong. (to send 2 esc's)

Still there in severn, I'm willing to write a patch for this and bugs 63473 and
80651, if you're willing to include it :)
