I committed a workaround which changes keystr to length 9, and uses 
strncpy with width 8 to fix the problem for now.  I don't like it, but I 
can't think of a better way on very few characters to convey the concept 
of "up arrow" in all languages, especially since we already use ^ all 
over the place to mean control.  I welcome any and all ideas about this.
