As the Subject says, in minicom the keyboard macros pmac1 to pmac9
function as expected but pmac10 does not work:  nothing appears to
happen when F10 is pressed in minicom.

Does pmac10 work for anyone else?

Below is information that I expect is relevant, including the keyboard
macros file I am using:
