What is the value of `function-key-map'?  Mine says:

```
(keymap (M-return . [-134217715]) (return . [13]) (kp-equal . [61]) (kp-divide . [47]) (kp-decimal . [46]) (kp-subtract . [45]) (kp-separator . [44]) (kp-add . [43]) (kp-multiply . [42]) (kp-enter . [13]) (kp-tab . [9]) ...)
```
Note the entry for `return'.  If it is not there, you can say something
like

(define-key function-key-map [return] [13])

but this really shouldn't be necessary.
```
```
The value of function-key-map is

```
(keymap (kp-equal . [61]) (kp-divide . [47]) (kp-decimal . [46]) (kp-subtract . [45]) (kp-separator . [44]) (kp-add . [43]) (kp-multiply . [42]) (kp-enter . [13]) (kp-tab . [9]) (kp-space . [32]) (kp-9 . [57]) ...)
```
```
Adding the define-key does solve the problem, everything starts working normally.

```Are you sure you have a correct installation?

```
```
I have a system which I upgraded from 10.1 to 10.2, then 10.2.1 and 10.2.2 with all the successive patches from Apple.
```
```
```Is the problem really specific to the Powerbook G4?
```
```
```
I don't know. The only MacOS X machine I have is this laptop, everything else are Linux boxes.
```
Thanks for the tips!

Best regards,
Ovidiu
