This has come from Gentoo's bugzilla: https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=184740

It was logged against joe 3.5 but is also applicable to 3.7.

The line numbers have changed and should now be 781 and 966 instead of 1051 and 1235.

------

The /etc/joe/jstarrc file has a new setting (line 1235)

uparw,eol ^P

which blocks the use of ^P (as set on line 1051) to in a search or
search-and-replace context to find or replace control characters (which are
often a problem in foreign text files). This can be fixed simply by removing
line 1235. The use of ^P to enter control characters has been standard in the
jstar invocation of joe forever. There are plenty of other synonyms for
"uparw,eol", so ^P isn't needed for that.

Reproducible: Always
