F2 key does whatnow? - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

I'm just starting to use Redhat 8.0 and the F2 no longer works with my application. I see it is doing some sort of builtin previous command list or something but it doesn't even seem to be outputting the correct char sequence. Is there some way I can disable whatever is going on? Thanks. Mike Lazenby...

    ...what's assigning special features to the Fkeys in multi-user mode. When I
    boot into single my F2 key works perfectly. Anyone??

    problem is to offer much assistance.

    Perhaps some detail about whether your running in X-Windows, or the
    command line. Info regarding the programming language your app is using
    would likely be helpful as well. What are you expecting and what is it
    doing, specifically?

    Text or GUI multi-user mode? If it's GUI mode, it may be the window
    manager. You do know that you use ctrl-alt-Fx to switch from the GUI
    to a text console, right? In some window managers (like fvwm), the
    F-keys may work differently depending on whether numlock is on.

    Well, it is in text mode. As I posted to another group, it works OK in
    single user mode, so I know it CAN be disabled...

    The F2 key is executing some sort of a macro, it is not outputting the
    standard Chars for F2 under linux emulation....
