Are they saying anything at all?

Actually, I have just tried Ctrl+PgUp / Ctrl+PgDown (which you can free
from the settings dialog) and Ctrl+Home / Ctrl+End on in Gnome
Terminal and neither of those takes me to the beginning / end of file.

Ctrl+PgUp / Ctrl+PgDown take me to the beginning or the end of the
buffer and Ctrl+Home / Ctrl+End behave identically to Home/End.

Both of these are optional and should be off by default. If this is not
the case with the latest version, please submit a bug report.
