Hrmm.. I just tried it, and recieved that problem.. Perhaps I broke something
somewhere.. it wasn't doing that yesterday. I'll look into that..

Yeah.. I think there is a problem with the cdk -> curses interface on some
terminal emulations.. It's treating function keys as escape keys. Brett Lymn
suggested I fiddle with the curses timeout() function to get function keys
recognized. Upping it from 100 to 150 solved a problem where PgUp and PgDn
were getting interpreted by the form widgets as wierd keystrokes.

hrmm.. thats easy to fix.

This is confusing.. I'll look at that too.

Yeah.. perhaps we should.. It seems that the CDK port to curses isn't quite as
refined with cursor motion as the orignal ncurses version was. I'm not sure
why that is.

Obviously there are some bugs here, but I appreciate your efforts to make them
known to me.
