Package: konsole
Version: KDE 3.0.5 CVS/CVSup/Snapshot
Severity: normal
Installed from:    Compiled sources
Compiler:          gcc 2.95.4
OS:                Linux
OS/Compiler notes: Not Specified

In recent builds, Konsole has started eating CTRL+B keypresses.

This makes using Vi in a konsole session rather annoying, as you can CTRL+F down a file, but using CTRL+B to go back up won't work.

On investigating, it appears that it's because the Application Shortcut for Add Bookmark is assigned to CTRL+B.

Is there any real reason why Konsole would honour a shortcut for add bookmark?

This also affects less, man, and quite a few other console based programs that involve text paging.
