This same version of emacs generates ESC DEL on the Solaris system at
work.  If ESC DEL is always mapped to ESC C-d then why does ESC DEL
invoke dired-unmark-all-files on Solaris?

Furthermore, note these two lines from C-h m performed in a dired-x
mode buffer:

ESC C-d         dired-tree-down
ESC DEL         dired-unmark-all-files

If ESC DEL is always mapped into ESC C-d then how could both of these
functions be invoked?

ESC DEL may indeed be remapped to ESC C-d in most locations, but it
appears incorrect for it to be done in a dired-x buffer.

What can I do to help investigate this?
