The standard way of sending nul is Ctrl-Shift-2. Many systems
will also allow Ctrl-Space. nul normally prints on screen as "^@"
(control characters are normally preceded by "^" and "@" is Shift-2).
It would appear that you are successfully sending nul, but it isn't
being interpreted as cnmagic.
Shift-2 might be '@' on a US keyboard. Not neccesarily on other...
Ctrl-Space have been used to generate NUL for far longer, even though it
might seem un-intuitive in some ways.
But that goes in the same vein as having the key with the " <= " symbol
send DEL, which is also old as well, but most people nowadays expect it
to send BS.
Just thought I'd add some misc trivia. :-)
