Question Issue with Xemacs key binding

I am working with Xemacs while ssh'ed in using Cygwin on a Windows box at work. I would like to map the move over sexp functions from C-M-b and C-M-a to C-{ and C-}, respectively because C-M brings up the blasted Start Bar in Windows.

After spending a fair bit of time looking at online posts and reading the documentation, I tried adding the following to my .emacs file:
(keyboard-translate ?\C-{ ?\C-\M-f)
(keyboard-translate ?\C-} ?\C-\M-b)

While I don't get any errors upon loading up another Xemacs session, I also get "C-{ not defined." when I try to use the keystroke. If I add or remove ?'s from the above, Xemacs gives me errors when I start another session. What am I doing wrong, and what would be the correct way of doing this?

Thanks in advance!
