key "a" does not appear in bash (stty or termcap trouble?)

    I'm having strange situation where "a" key produces ^G according to Emacs
    buffer. The same in DOS box. The cursor keys do not scroll history, but
    generate bunch of Q's.

    If this is termcap issue, how to solve it? (any pointer to termcap faq?)
