gnome-terminal claims to be an xterm emulator, for this the zvtterm xterm
emulator widget is used.
This widget has the following problems:
-home, end & del don't match terminfo/termcap nor do the match
xterm/rxvt/Eterm/konsole. Try for example mc.
-F1-F4 send VT100 style esc-sequences, this doesn't match terminfo/termcap
nor does it match xterm/rxvt/konsole/Eterm. Try for example F1 in vim or
-* and / on the keypad don't honor application keypad mode. See for
example options->learnkeys in mc.
The attached patch fixes these problems , and adds:
-shift F1-F10 send F11-F20 just like xterm,rxvt & Eterm.
These fixes bring gnome-terminal on par with the fixes done to the other
terminal emulators in RH to get error free keybindings in RH6.2
