ah.  The TERM=xterm-color does sound like Terminal (though I didn't
know about any quirks with function-keys).  Offhand I would expect
various terminals to differ on F1-F4 since the old xterm implements
a quasi-vt220 set of escape sequences there, while new xterm defaults
to vt100-style PF1-PF4 (though it can be switched).
