Default Just a few questions.


I have a few questions that has been bugging me for a while, hope I
find the answers I;m looking for

I use zsh for shell, rxvt-unicode for Terminal emulator, urxvt runs
with TERM rxvt-unicode, GNU Screen runs with the term screen-256color,
now I'm not sure what's the issue, but when I login through GDM/KDM
the colors inside screen are all messed up, here's 2 screenshots, the
1st one[1] is when gnome was started via usual startx command and the
second[2] is for gnome session when started from GDM/KDM, the colors
are not just messed up in zsh, in mutt and in every ncurses programs..

The second question is about a problem that has been bugging me for a
while now, and it happend in ViM ruinning in X, Screen or Console...
When I type a letter, erase it and type another letter, I'll get
a weird char, not what I've typed, ex: the next quoted character is
supposed to be a, and the one after that is f, and i see? "å" "?" "?"
... I have no idea why this is happening but it's really annoying to have
undetected error like these while scripting... Any ideas ??

The third problem is zsh related, anyway the problem is when I try to use
zsh outside rxvt-unicode the keys Home, PgUP, PgDn and End does not
work, in gnome-terminal instead of going to the beginning of the line,
I get this instead:
Here's a screenshot of gnome-terminal[3]... This doesn't happen in

I included relevant config files below, key bindings are defind in
.inputrc and .zsh/zle....

Thank you
