It didn't get lost.  The message is the same.  I implemented the

It does. I just checked again and it returns ^[^?.
I wasn't claiming that you were mistaken about seeing something.
However, I did try to emulate what I saw on my linux systems which is
why the code carefully did nothing in the case of Alt-Backspace.

Uh, I see. I already feared that might be different between the consoles of different Linux systems.

Is it really different, or does this comment from Thomas Wolff earlier in the thread explain the discrepancy?
