When in insert mode, and pagedown is pressed, the letter the cursor is
over is capitalized, and the editor is removed from insert mode, as an
PageUp capitalizes the letter next to it, and again removes me from
Home randomly capitalizes letters and shifts the cursor to the next letter.
Insert decapitalizes the letter the cursor is over.
Weird behavior like this...
I was mistaken in that this is in vim-- this is in the natural version
of vi that ships with the base OS.
This is happening from PuTTY in default setting mode on a Windows box--
my MacBook is relatively better behaved.
