Actually, it does. Curses uses the TERM variable to *determine* which
termcap/terminfo entry to use. It's not the gnome-terminal which
reads termcap/terminfo, it's curses-using progrms (like vim).
However, it does appear from a little googling that gnome-terminal
doesn't accept the titeInhibit resource, so this might be a blind
However, a lot of poking in the vim help files reveals that putting:
:set t_ti= t_te=
in your .vimrc will inhibit the sending of these codes, so that might
work for you. Note : other curses programs like less and whatnot
will still exhibit the old behaviour - if you want this to apply to
all programs, you could edit the terminfo source and change the smcup
and rmcup entries for xterm... (see "man tic" and "man terminfo").
