Hmm, I guess I wasn't thinking correctly when I replied to you the first
time.   The data in the XTerm file is what will be sent from the xterm to
TN5250 -- changing your XTerm file to send the same thing that you're
already sending accomplished nothing :)

Instead of changing XTerm, you need to change your termcap/terminfo entry
for backtab so that it matches that string...  That will cause ncurses to
recognize it as a "backtab"

I see, however, that the 5250.terminfo file that's in the linux directory
of the distro looks like this:
     kcbt=\E[Z

Which would appear to be the correct value.   So, maybe the problem is
that the 5250.terminfo file isn't getting installed on your system?  Or is
getting installed into the wrong place for Fedora?
