A few people confirmed that their system always sends keycode 87 for keypad 1/End, independently of NumLock's state. They don't face this bug. I've connected an external keyboard to my laptop and that one also always sends 87, as opposed to the built-in one. Really looks like we're facing some

My 2 cents: Shift+PageUp, Shift+PageDown have historically been the shortcuts for scrolling, hence application don't expect these keypresses to get delivered. Shift+Up, Shift+Down, however, generate escape sequences that are useful for applications (e.g. select text in editor), it would be bad

Could you provide concrete escape sequences (like an echo command, or a short text file to cat)? I can't figure out how to test this. CSI is traditionally ESC + [. This is used e.g. to change the foreground color: echo -e '\x1B[31mred\x1B[0m' The CSI you're referring to seems to be an alternate

If you're using UTF-8 character set, you need to execute stty iutf8, so that a stty -a reports back iutf8. For non-UTF-8, the command to be executed is stty -iutf8 and accordingly stty -a should report -iutf8. Gnome-terminal sets this according to the initial character set of the terminal, but

I'm sure this behavior won't change. TAB is not a regular character, it is a control character, just like let's say escape sequences that move the cursor; copy-pasting doesn't include those either. It's a bonus that gnome-terminal tries to remember when a tab was emitted, most terminal emulators
