Ah, interesting.

Thanks for the work on this Maiko.

I've had mine TERM set to xterm, thinking it was probably the safest bet.
But I never spent the time to dig into the specific differences.  I'll be
interested to see what you find.

I might have jumped the gun on this one, although the fix will stand.

On my development system, the command recall always did work. However, when
I run JNOS on my linux console, I also have the TERM environment variable
set to 'linux', which seems to work with existing code.

If you run JNOS on a window that has TERM set to 'xterm' or something along
that line, then the fix is required. There are some interesting posts on the
topic if you search the web. I need to read up on this a bit more and get a
better understanding of how keys get mapped.
