A wee bit more trouble but at least I figgered it out myself.  HOME and 
END stopped working.

Used to work:

bindkey "\eOH"  beginning-of-line
bindkey "\eOF"  end-of-line

... but now:

# 2022-09-26: These are the new values for HOME and END:
bindkey "\e[H"  beginning-of-line
bindkey "\e[F"  end-of-line

Why does this happen?  Who does this, and why do they do it?  Is this 
something built into the keyboard or does Debian do this?  IIRC the 
actual hardware signals to the computer are not what '^v' shows us, 
there's a few levels of interpretation involved, so could  be the 
keyboard itself, or Debian or Linux.  But why bother?  Why do they hate us?
