I'm still having problems with display file error messages.  I have
several programs that use display file error messages.  When I turn on a
specific message, the emulator should reverse-image the appropriate field, 
position the cursor in that field and inhibit typing (until the reset key
is pressed).  Client Access, at least, gets all of this right.  tn5250
reverse-images the fields, but doesn't do the other things.

I can't read 5250 streams, so I'm not sure what's happening (or not
happening) here, but I've run an example and traced it.  I just log in, go 
to a program that uses error messages, and make it use them.  It looks
like tn5250 is getting the data and understanding it, if I correctly
understand

InsertCursor: entered.
InsertCursor: row = 8; col = 64

to mean that it wants to position the cursor to 8,64.  That is where the
first field in error is.  In actuality, though, the cursor remains at
(7,64), the position of the first input field.  (I'm also assuming that
these coordinates are 1-based.)

The tracefile is attached.
