I had some time to briefly play with this, and M-^V ended up pasting from
the clipboard for me, which was quite odd. M-^N did not work as expected
either. In fact, many of my keys were not working. I seem to recall
swearing off the OSX terminal version's key binding support long ago...
Maybe my OSX VM is to blame though (10.6.2).
