I just upgraded to RedHat 7.1 (i386) from 6.2, and now some NEdit accelerators
don't work at all. Specifically, ^S, ^F and ^Z (and others) insert their
corresponding control character in the data, while ^C, ^X and ^V all
appear to work correctly (perform copy, cut and paste). This behavior
is consistent. This may be a problem in the newer X implementation
that comes with RedHat 7.1, but I don't know where to look.

Suggestions?

Thanks.

    Does turning off NumLock/CapsLock resolve the issue? If so,
    then it's an outstanding bug.

    The problem is related to scroll-lock on linux, which is mapped
    in XFree86 to insert literal control characters. This problem does
    not appear to be related to nedit at all, so you can close this bug.
    The reason it popped up is because I'm using a KVM that uses
    two Scroll-lock keypresses as its attention sequence. Unfortunately,
    it doesn't always "see" the first scroll-lock, so sometimes it requires
    three scroll-lock keypresses, which leaves the function toggled.
