Hmm, less could be getting confused by the VT220-style Home/End
keycodes that mintty sent so far. 0.3.7 sends "PC-style" keycodes that
are compatible with the xterm terminfo entry.
To get them working in less, add these two lines to ~/.lesskey (and
run lesskey to translate it into the binary ~/.less):
