Sorry to have left you waiting this long.
Are you sure you are using Ctrl-K and not Ctrl-V or Ctrl-Q? Ctrl-K
(followed by one non-printing key) should show the <> representation
(and for me it does, at least when the key is not hijacked before Vim
gets it); Ctrl-V (or Ctrl-Q if you use Ctrl-V to paste) shows the <>
representation in gvim, but in Console Vim it shows the raw keycodes Vim
got from the keyboard driver or terminal.
My Vim is compiled with GTK2/Gnome2 GUI. I have both Gnome and KDE
installed. ATM my window manager is a Gnome one (Metacity, I think) but
only because I find the KDE4 WM ugly. As console terminals I use KDE
konsole, the Linux "pure-text" console (on Ctrl-Alt-F2 to Ctrl-Alt-F6,
come back to X with Ctrl-Alt-F7), or sometimes (rarely) xterm or mlterm.
There once was a plumber from Leigh,
Who was plumbing his maid by the sea,
Said she, "Please stop plumbing,
I think someone's coming!"
Said he, "Yes I know love, it's me."

no one we know belongs.
