This seems to be regression. I did git bisect and
0b6757da5d84a7cdd903099aefd2ff7fe668705c started giving me these

Earlier versions such as cae14933a6b32bc7260964439f9def316c7520ba
seems to work for me.

Most keycommands are still unimplemented, and some implemented ones
may work incorrectly. Basic browsing of text file and some simple edit
commands work.
