The best of course - Debian (sid) ;-)

As far as the XTerm entries above go, I just noticed a while back that Home &
End had stopped working, and copied the lines in from an earlier version.
BackSpace happened to be one of the others that was no longer there, so I put
that in too. It (backspace) works as expected in all the terms I use - aterm
by preference, but it's fine in a standard xterm too. Home and End don't
(currently) do anything in xterm, other than generate an annoyed bleep ;)
