Comment (by Kev):

 First apologies if this is a separate bug, but I wanted to chime in
 because I think I'm experiencing something related, although much of the
 discussion here is over my head.

 If I open Terminal in hrev46102 and ssh into a CentOS box, it seems to
 work OK most of the time, but if I launch GNU nano from ssh, then strange
 things happen.  Whenever I hold down the right arrow key, for instance, it
 will wipe out a random third of characters as the cursor moves along, and
 occasionally jump a whole tab full at once.  However, it hasn't actually
 sent these space characters over the wire, because if I save the file and
 reload, it looks normal again.  This makes nano over ssh pretty tough to
 use practically.

 I was about to file a new bug report, but I found out nano uses curses,
 so...here I am.  I can add screenshots or if you think this is different
 I'll file a new one after all.
