On Mac OSX, native text entries use Emacs-style movement keys by default. In the terminal version of Textadept, cdk (the UI toolkit in use) uses Emacs-style movement keys for its text entries too. Therefore, Textadept enables the same keys in an attempt to be consistent. Linux and Windows do not have Emacs-style movement keys enabled by default. You have to tweak things manually. If you do, then you'll have to tweak Textadept too.

Basically, there is a reason they weren't enabled for Linux :)
