Now I recall what I did to get the alt/option key combination to work 
(be aware that this masks some standard Mac OS keyboard combinations, 
like the one that produces a square root sign: Ã (option-v)). Have a 
look here: http://gnufoo.org/macosx/macosx.html (I used an older 
version of the instruction, which isn't as invasive as this one, I 
limited myself to the KeyBindings.dict file).

Those do not move the insertion point.
