That is odd.
$ cat /var/log/packages/ncurses-6.1_20180324-x86_64-3 | egrep
Maybe the difference is due to some patching in the Ubuntu version?
Your versions of 6.1-1ubuntu1.18.04 don't indicate which incremental
version they're based on, and, if I recall correctly, Slackware's
philosophy is to patch original sources as little as possible, whereas
Ubuntu is more liberal when it comes to patching.

$ cat ~/.config/xfce4/terminal/terminalrc
In yours, the ShortcutsNoHelpkey, ShortcutsNoMenukey, and
ShortcutsNoMnemonics options would affect key interpretation, but I
think they just keep certain keys from being intercepted by the terminal
instead of nano, so they wouldn't be causing this problem. If they
correspond in the GUI to Edit -> Preferences... -> Advanced -> the three
toggles under Shortcuts, this should be the case.
(For the record, I also think it's a problem that you have to manually
edit xfce-terminal's configuration file to get a blinking cursor, and
that there's no GUI equivalent for it, but that's definitely off-topic.)

I'm not sure either, but I don't think it affects key interpretation.

Good to know, but I don't think it affects key interpretation either.
