term (rxvt) creates ~ when pressing home/end


How do I allow rxvt to let me use the buttons Home and End? If I press either of them, a tilde "~" is inserted at the cursor.

The strange thing is, Home and End work fine on an xterm...

If I run rvxt, set the variable, it doesn't appear to do anything.

If it requires it to be set before the term is run, will this then break xterm? Will I have to write a special case in my ~/.bashrc?
