As I stated earlier, Vim uses termcap, not curses. Termcap is more low
level and seems to detect the correct keys.

I'm going to venture a guess that SecureCRT does not emit any escape
sequences Textadept (or any curses for that matter) recognizes -- only
low-level termcap sequences. I'm no console programmer though, and don't
know what to do about it other than use something that supports more
