There is a bugzilla on this.
But count your blessings - xterm doesn't even work on ppc ;)
I want that fixed too. ctrl-h works.

A similar thing happened to me during test - and then came back - not
sure what/why.

Not experiencing with any of my logitech mice (3 different kinds, two
optical one ball, all usb)

There's some other problems with FC4 as well - some video cards, virtual
consoles are broken etc. It's a good release, but I don't think it as
solid OOB as FC3 was - depending upon hardware (some hardware it's
beautiful). Hopefully after a month of updates it will be better.
