The IDE recognizes the characters a-z sent by the terminal emulator. Those 
are then converted to scancode+symbol in the keyboard unit, and then 
interpreted again. FV uses just the scancode, so some weird characters 
that do not have a scancode might fail.

However, it should be keymap independend, and on my system it works 
perfectly: if I swaitch my keyboard to azerty is behaves as expected both 
in xterm and console.
