[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#318047: xfce4-terminal: 'Next/Previous tab' keys output garbage if pressed at 1st or last tabs going outwards

Package: xfce4-terminal
Version: 0.2.4-3
Severity: normal

For example, with three tabs open, if 'Ctrl-PageDown' is pressed in the
third and last tab, the terminal output looks like ";5~". 
'gnome-terminal' wouldn't do that, it'd output nothing, just as in most
text editors, if you press the 'END' key repeatedly, it'll go to the end
of the line and stay there.

KDE's 'konsole' uses 'shift-left arrow' to page through tabs; if it goes
beyond the last tab it returns to the first tab.  It doesn't output
garbage either.  But I'm used to the 'gnome-terminal' way, and hope
'xfce4-terminal' continues to imitate it.

Hope this helps...
