as I said, terminfo is not fully populated
it misses lots of ctrl-<key> (left arrow, right arrow...) and has not 
been updated lately
most of the common text editors come with their own config files
for example, /etc/inputrc has the missing bindings for libreadline (and 
of course it depends on $TERM)
so, updating terminfo isn't the solution

would you consider inclusion in hklm (instead of hkcu) ?
