x5250 supports two ways of pasting multi-line text: moving to the first
input field of the next line and aligned.  By default the move to the next
new line method occurs.  To use the align method use shift+middle click.

It works this way because sometimes I need one way and sometimes I need
the other.  For example, pasting lines using interactive SQL doesn't
really need to be aligned.  But SEU does.

Just use the SysRq on your keyboard.  On mine it is part of the Print Scrn
key.  The odd part is that the SysRq key isn't sent unless I also hold
down Alt.  The Alt modifier key is not required by x5250, but rather the
keyboard itself doesn't send the SysRq key without it.
