This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.3.1 (i386-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
 of 2004-08-03 on raven, modified by Debian
configured using `configure '--build=i386-linux' '--host=i386-linux' 
'--prefix=/usr' '--sharedstatedir=/var/lib' '--libexecdir=/usr/lib'

'--mandir=/usr/share/man' '--with-pop=yes' '--with-x=yes' 
'--with-x-toolkit=athena' 'CFLAGS=-DDEBIAN -g -O2' 'build_alias=i386-linux' 
'host_alias=i386-linux''

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

I wuold like to propose that the

   terminal-escape-char ?\C-^

is changed to a better alternative. The ^ character (including ~) too
is not a natural key at least in Finnish keyboard. I don't know
the technical term, but it's those "dead" keys that need to be configured
separately.

I was ssh'ing to remote site and working in "emacs -nw" and opened
op M-x terminal-emulator, just to find out that there was nothing I
could do to get back to the Emacs where it was running. The default
key terminal-escape-char was not produced in this remote ssh connection.

I would propose this instead for default value:

  terminal-escape-char ?\C-'
