right. I am using a gnome-terminal (v3.18.3) on an up-to-date Ubuntu 16.04. I am usually inside byobu/tmux, but the issues remain the same, inside or outside byobu, so it seem really to be somethig to tackle in gnome-terminal (which AFAIR, is essentially a very tweaked (or layer over) x-term). > > Note that normally terminal emulators have a setting allowing to use > either `<Esc>` or the eighth bit for `<A-`, and AFAIR that sometimes > is even possible to configure from Vim by making it output special > escape codes recognized by terminal emulator.

I would like to configure it from Vim, if any idea or info comes to mind, please drop a line here.
