You (as in I/me) learn something every day :) Just tried this in KMail - fun.
I'd put my tuppence for this option too. I never knew about that in Client
Access, so tried it out there too (nearly a minute from clicking the option
to getting a logon screen - bleagh). I'm used to w, e & p to skip words in
Vim, but I've always got by with just the End key in tn5250. Speaking of
which, the keymap for End (and a few others) is missing from both 0.16.2 and
0.17.x cvs. I add the following to my /usr/local/share/tn5250/XTerm
(disappeared from cvs at some point).

        <Key>BackSpace: string("\177") \n\
        <Key>End: string("\033[4~") \n\
        <Key>Home: string("\033[1~") \n\
