but McAfee 4.5 and 5.x do.

In particular, they don't like binutils (as well as a couple of other
less-essential packages which I don't recall).

home/end are probably a terminfo mismatch (afaik I've tested "cygwin"
in ncurses 5.x, but have seen some mangled versions from the people
working on cygwin which obviously were not tested - perhaps that's
the problem).

shift-tab is a terminal emulator limitation: most emulators don't
implement this (I did for XFree86 xterm early last year, though I
haven't tried using that with Lynx)
