Thanks Frank,

Got that working yesterday, but unfortunately got loads of other intermittent
problems. Some have disappeared but some remain.

So this morning, I reinstalled xt5250 and started afresh:
The fieldexit no longer works (shows +), and worse the Fkeys dont work (eg F3
shows 'OR', F4='OS'...)
The underlines are gone.

I've put together a tn5250rc, and removed it, to see if that is causing
problems - but it seems to work perfectly:

tssukb {

The +underscores works, but I'd prefer to have the underlines back.

My xt5250 is as-is with the exception of -name/title:

exec xterm -name "$XT5250_HOST" -bg black -fg white -T "$XT5250_HOST" \
  +sb -tn xterm-5250 -geometry 80x25 -e "$0" -BOOT "$@"

My .Xresources is:
tssukb*color2: cyan
tssuka*color2: yellow

How can I reset the Fkeys, and why did Fld+ work and then stop? I'm fairly
sure it's something I've done because when I first compiled it everything was
