OK, besides OpenOffice, how many applications actually do *anything*
when the Insert key is pressed? Evolution doesn't change its behaviour.

Specifically, how many applications in Main do anything with the Insert
key? This may be a complete non-issue in the end ...

App		Insert key?
Evolution	no
gedit		OVR
emacs		it *must* do something? :-)
OpenOffice	OVR
