Great! Could you try and make another educated guess? ;-) What could
have changed in FreeBSD between 8.4 and 9.3 that caused this problem?
I have always used vim+screen on my FreeBSD 8.4 box at work from my
9.3-STABLE desktop at home (over ssh, from X). The problem with the
"Home" and "End" keys arose when I upgraded the work box to 9.3.
Of course the upgrade involved the update of all ports, so maybe vim
or screen are to blame and not FreeBSD per se.
