I finally tried dvtm yesterday, and yeah, having meta not work correctly
was really annoying me. Atleast in Irssi when doing esc-#, it only worked
on the next key press after that. This patch is a great improvement to that.

IMO it would make sense to s/ESC/META/ the patch though, as it isn't just the
esc key that is affected.
