I think this is fairly recent. I stumbled upon your bug report while
searching why Alt + "left arrow" switched to another VT. It started to
happen to me today. Therefore, I think this only happens with 231-2 but
not with 231-1 (assuming this is the same cause).
Make it clear before you make it faster.
