...oh and also map home to Ctrl-A and end to Ctrl-E specifically for the terminal app and you have it working there too. Butler is able to set the keystrokes on a per-app basis.

Nothing to sort out, it has always been as it is now on a mac. I, and many other mac users, prefer it as is, thank you.

I'd just like to point out that I'm a long-time Mac user and have no need for the default home/end key actions: jump to the beginning of the document, but leave the cursor where it was. It just makes no sense to me.

I use KeyRemap4MacBook to map these to start/end of line, which are much more common actions, in my opinion.

Last time I was using a Mac desktop machine with an apple-supplied keyboard, the home and end keys did nothing. I remember thinking "hey apple, why give us a keyboard with dead keys??". That was on a G4 desktop with OSX 10.1, 10.2, 10.3 and 10.4.
