Strange.  For me, with the latest patch, on an rxvt, <Shift+Left>,
<Shift+Right>, <Shift+Home> and <Shift+End> work: they
select text in the expected way.  (The latter two don't work on
an xterm or Gnome terminal.)

All the other combinations don't work: they either do nothing,
saying "Unknown Command", or do the same as if Ctrl or Alt
weren't pressed.

Hints don't help me anything.  Give me working code.
