Thanks Jon and Steven, the global-bind-key function did the trick. Now
I can go back to using tabs :)
Do you think that it would be a good idea to include a faq entry in the
help menu? It would probably save you answering the same questions over
and over in this list...

Below are a selection of previous psotings on bad keys
and translations methods. You should be able to map
(or get rid of) the key using one of the following
methods. Once you know what the key sequence is then
it is fairly easy to map it out or translate it to
something more useful.
Then hit the key giving you a problem.
Will display the key code that it received.
If there are multiple keys being sent in then
and find the variable $recent-keys this
will show you all of the keys that
have come in recently. Trouble with
$recent-keys is that you have to type
keys to get to it. What I normally is
temporarily bind list variables to
a key i.e.
The binding should now be set up, now enter
the following sequence of keys.
<f9> - should get variable list with new binding.
<duff key> - strike duff key once
<f9> - should update the variable list
Your duff key codes will be between the two f9's
in the variable $recent-keys.
If there are multiple characters received then
use translate-key to turn them into nothing or
somethiong else. Could also use translate-key
to turn a single key into nothing - I think this
works - if it does translate key is better than
the void binding to get rid of the key.
If you do not want it then globally bind it to "void"
global-bind-key void "<key code>"
Fix one key at a time, first find out what the
key is to find out the key code and then use
translate-key to fix it. The standard key board
translations that we do are in the file "keyboard.emf"
so you can use this as an example of how to
translate a key i.e.
translate-key "<from codes>" "<to codes>"
If you want to get rid of a key then use
global-bind-key void "<duff key>"
Add the translations and global bindings
to your <user>.emf file so they are run
at startup. If you use a single common
<user>.emf across all platforms then
use the $platform variable
to determine the platform and decide
what translations to apply similar to
