Completely forgot I put up this bug report. After upgrading aterm, the problem fixed itsself, so it was aterm's fault, not nano's :)

Sorry it took so long to get to this.  I'll need more information in order to be any help, though:

1. What versions of aterm and xterm are you using?  I can't seem to reproduce this with aterm 1.00beta3 or xterm patchlevel 197.

2. Which Home/End keys show the problem?  The ones on the editing keypad, the ones on the numeric keypad, or both?  If it's the latter, were you using the -K/--keypad option with 1.2.4?

3. In 1.3.7, try going into verbatim input mode by pressing Meta-V, and then press the Home key.  Do the same for the End key.  What gets printed out for each key?

When testing the unstable 1.3.7 version of nano, my home/end keys no longer work compared to 1.2.4, resulting in a 'j' printed when pressing home, and no result when pressing end. I've tried switching my TERM from rxvt (I use aterm) to xterm and linux; xterm gives the same problem, but works with xterm as the TERM with the side effect of "[?1;2c" being printed in the buffer.

I don't know much about terminal settings and such like that except that it might have to do with difference between distribution termcap definitions or ncurses terminfo.
