Add control for some common emacs keybindings. Ctr-a and Ctr-e for beg and end of line seem to work but Ctr-f and Ctr-b for forward and backward chars and Ctr-p and Ctr-n for previous and next line don't.
Don't need to set or use the above as defaults, but it would be nice to add the ability to make these available as assignable keyboard shortcuts.
Every commands you state here works for me, on Ubuntu + Awesome WM.
I bet this is more likely an environment based issue ....
