The problem with the "=" key being inoperable with TERM = vt102 turns
out to be specific to the Terminal program since I do not get this
behavior with the X11 program. I looked and Terminal does not have
anything obvious to change this behavior. In any case -q does not
change the situation. Also when I use ssh the TERM variable on the
remote host is set to what it is on my local Mac so that is not the
source of the problem. So the problem remains but thanks for your
