I know that in FreeBSD's console mode, if I hit shift+tab it generates the
same escape code as if I hit shift-F2.   This meant that I could not
distinguish backtab from F14 until I created a separate termcap, etc, that
sent separate codes for those. I don't have this problem in FreeBSD when
I'm using xt5250, though.

However, if you load the keyboard maps supplied with TN5250, shift+tab
should work.  It does for me, at least!  I couldn't live without it!  Then
again, I don't know if it's different on your keyboard vs. the ones we use
in the US.

I also don't know if it's different with a 122 key keyboard...  is this
under Linux?  Trinux?  X11?  xt5250 or gnome-5250?  console mode?
