  Thanks for the replies. I found the same with earlier versions of
  FYI: The workstation is a mac mini with OS X on dual-boot. I
  find that iTerm2 translates all but the enter key, but as if
  numlock is on (which is OK for binding).

  Oh well, I'll just use X11 emacs, which is as nimble on ubuntu as
  terminal mode is on the Mac :)
  thanks again
