The Linux console uses shift-page up. If you want to use shift-page up
for dvtm you could:
- stop using the Linux console (e.g. use X Windows, or a different OS)
- modify Linux console not to use shift-page up (I don't know if that's
possible since I'm not a Linux programmer)

Or you could use a different key in dvtm; maybe Alt-PageUp or
Ctrl-PageUp would be possible, but I don't know. DVTM already works
with Ctrl-g PageUp, use that.
