'alt' key in OS X, emacs bindings

I've been using the emacs bindings for the editor, and now that I've upgraded my Mac from Tiger to Leopard, the bindings seem a little erratic. alt-f (move caret to next word) works fine, but alt-b displays an odd glyph, even though alt-b is definitely mapped to 'move caret to previous word'.

Anybody know what might be causing this? Command line programs in the terminal window still work, and so does my browser.

Hello Eric,

I've been using the emacs bindings for the editor, and now that I've
upgraded my Mac from Tiger to Leopard, the bindings seem a little
erratic. alt-f (move caret to next word) works fine, but alt-b
displays an odd glyph, even though alt-b is definitely mapped to 'move
caret to previous word'.

Anybody know what might be causing this? Command line programs in the
terminal window still work, and so does my browser.


There is an open issue: http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEA-17392.

I haven't figured out how to fix the problem. But it does appear that there is a JIRA ticket for this:

It appears that jEdit has figured out how to handle this. Hopefully IntelliJ can do the same...
