I've tried it again and the bindings seem to work, at least, though
they're a little unpleasant. On my keyboard (UK Qwerty) the keys are:
C-_ with Ctrl-/ and Ctrl-_ (Ctrl-Shift-Dash)
C-^ with Ctrl-6

I understand we're a little short bindings, thanks to curses, so I'm
unsure what to suggest. But as Ctrl-/ works it's better than I
thought; Ctrl-_ is an awful chord.

I also committed a patch which stops certain extra GCC warnings,
mostly from signed / unsigned comparisons, and replaced kill with
abort so we don't need -D_POSIX_SOURCE.
