I am running into a problem while editing on the Alphas.
Not running X, vi or vim edit correctly, without problems.
In X, twm/xterm, on exit from an input mode escape,
X or the xterm has the very annoying habit of switching
case on the last character entered before the escape,

   Hello world<escape>

entered into a file, switches case on the final letter,

   Hello worlD

which is rather annoying whilst editing code or documents
or whatever.

Anyone know what, if any, fix will get around this problem?
