Nope. :(
I'm using Xfree 4.0.1, and I tried to change it into Xfree 3.3.6. 
Under both servers I'm having troubles with keystrokes.
Please note that with the konsole the keys are correctly interpreted, 
e.g. if I push Up, konsole bash recalls previous commands. 
Moreover, the interactive terminal VIM interpretes correctly the keystrokes.

Under psql things are so strange. 
I don't understand if it's psql that its misinterpreting keystrokes (a wrong 
internal setting, which?), or it's something else? 

instead of Up (for scrolling in the internel buffer) it appears  ^[[A   
Down  ^[[B
Right ^[[C
Left  ^[[D
Back_del  (ok)
Forward_del ^[[3~
Tab  (moves the cursor but does not complete the sql command)
Esc ^[

What internal settings make the psql interpete the keystrokes, and how to 
toggle them?

(Mandrake 7.2, AMD Athlon, postgres ver.7.0.2)
