    I compiled the 3.7 version to run under Ubuntu's Hardy Linux as their latest package is only 3.5.

    When I press ^V to change the overtype/insert mode I'm prompted with this at the bottom of the screen:

    Option: T

    Has the behaviour changed or is this a bug ?

      I should also mention that I use 'jstar' to start the editor up on all versions I'm using and that ^V had worked as expected on earlier versions.
