I can reproduce this. Alt-X works as if Alt-V was pressed.

1) It doesn't. With this key definition, Alt-X is OK, but now it is Alt-H
that acts as Alt-V, so you can't get onto the help screen. Haven't tried
other characters yet.

2) BTW: The - char would be quite convenient, but is not recommendable if
you are using packet. You will never be able to connect to something like
db0erf-7. All you get is db0erf/7.  :-0

The "Alt-V-syndrome" occurs only with USE BIOS KEY CALLS = TRUE, so if at
all possible, set it to FALSE. TR works very well when accessing the keys
from the hardware side.
