Here's what I've found in 0.15.6:

In an unsigned numeric field-exit required field, the cursor remains
on the last character but on pressing field exit, the last character
is erased.

In both DFU (e.g. UPDDTA) and PDM (e.g. WRKOBJPDM), the cursor returns
to the first field on the screen.  In DFU it should move to the first
field in the record.  In PDM, it usually moves to the first entry in
the list.

In SEU, the Home key almost works.  It returns the cursor to the
initial cursor position, but once there it doesn't send a Home command
to the AS/400, to move the cursor to the command entry at the top of
the screen.

Using Alt- or the Escape key still doesn't work right - tn5250 doesn't
notice the key until another key is pressed.

A few more issues with SEU, too.  The first thing I noticed is that
Client Access usually doesn't process a field exit just by spacing
past the end of the field, but tn5250 seems to.

When editing a DDS source member, the Len field has problems.  It
should be possible to enter "+1" or "-1" (or +2, -10, etc.) in the
field, but tn5250 reuses the "+" and "-" keys which makes this
impossible.  I'm not sure what a good solution would be.  (I can still
enter the info directly, without prompting, so it's not a disaster!)

Also, field-minus in this field still does strange things, but not the
same strange things in tn5250 as other emulators.

Hope this helps!
