I admit still considering myself new to emacs, as I only use it with
Slime for Lisp (using Vim since many years for other languages I have
to deal with), but I noticed that although ctrl-a indeed moves the
cursor at the first column on the current line, the actual [home] key
(although not being one of the recommended emacs editing keys) moves it
at the top of the document as for alt-<.  Is this expected behaviour or
am I missing something in my configuration?  The [end] key behaves fine
as ctrl-e.  This is using GNU Emacs in urxvt.

Thank you,
