Upstream has recently remapped CTRL+Home and CTRL+End to the movements
to the beginning and the end of file to adhere to the standard set by
other editors. 

However, vte and consequently gnome-terminal sends the same sequences
for Home/End and CTRL+Home / CTRL+End and as the result we can't
distinguish them.


Home = ^[[H
End = ^[[F
CTRL+Home = ^[[1;5H
CTRL+End = ^[[1;5F

GNOME Terminal 2.28.1

Home = ^[OH
End = ^[OF
CTRL+Home = ^[OH
CTRL+End = ^[OF

FYI in Konsole / Xterm mode I get correct Xterm sequences, it's just
VTE that does not distinguish between Home and CTRL+Home.


This is a vte bug, not mc.
Sincerely yours,
Yury V. Zaytsev
