The GNOME terminal developers have not responded to my emails about the
bug report (yet) but some googling revealed the escape sequence problem
came up before some years ago and they refused to change the behavior
for the reason that a lot of other programs now depended on the current
behavior. I don't have a reference handy though. 

The RedHat bug ID tracking the MC ctrl-pgup/ctrl-pgdn problem is:

The Redhat bug started as an MC bug and was then switched to a GNOME
terminal bug since that's technically where the problem is (even though
it was a change in MC which caused the loss of functionality)

The MC bug (which has been closed as a "won't fix"):

Yes, neither work for me on RedHat Fedora 12. Prior to this version,
ctrl-pgdn took me to the bottom of the file and ctrl-pgup took me to the
top of the file. That functionality worked on all previous versions of
Fedora and on Fedora 12 when it was first released but broke with they
updated to MC 4.7.0.

In mc-, which is standard with Fedora 12, both those
"features" are on by default and I have not seen any obvious way of
turning them off. I highly approve any changes that would make such
unusual behaviors not the default. In the meantime, how could I turn off
those behaviors?
