i am Modifying the bug-report..  i was using [O] when i had meant to
use [?O], as pointed out by Kalle. 

now that i am using "O" instead of [O] as i had meant to, the
complaint has reverted back to the original complaint i had (posted in
g.e.help originally ) ---->

Start emacs -q -no-site-file.

Do a 
(define-key key-translation-map "O" "o")

<--works great, pressing O now inserts o.

The problem is that the up-arrow key stopes working..

By viewing lossage, it emerges that when i press up-arrow, emacs sees
ESC o A instead of ESC O A.

This shoudl not have happened, because if you look at the
function-key-map in the parent-mail, the function-key-map should have
translated this ESC O A into 'up' before this key-combination could
have ever reached key-translation-map. 

The relevant variables on my TERM are in the parent mail of this
