You can solve this problem by removing the enhanced keyword from the session in your .tn5250rc file.

I could, but I like the windows better now ;)

Me too :)

I have some fixes in my tn5250 source tree that already fix this problem

What the hey, I'll try it. If I don't break anything, I must not be doing enough! If you have it on a site somewhere, I'll just download. Otherwise, feel free to email me a .tgz to play with.

Ok, here is my current tree:

and the next release of x5250 that requires the above:

http://www.chowhouse.com/~james/x5250/x5250-0.5.2.tar.gz

As a side benefit, this version also fixes some internalization issues. Thanks to Martin Rowe I was able to configure my machine to use UK keyboard settings so I was finally able to test things like the euro symbol.

You mentioned that updating x5250 wiped out your keymappings. I'm kind of surprised that happened. I thought 'make install' would not install over the existing X5250 file. Regardless, be sure to back up this file before installing (or put your keymappings in ~/.Xdefaults).

One more important thing: I haven't mastered autoconf yet and my new version doesn't install tn5250.pc which autoconf looks for when building x5250. To solve this, just keep your existing tn5250.pc in $PREFIX/lib/pkgconfig (the same file from the last release of tn5250 works just fine). Otherwise ./configure in x5250 will fail.

It's not the software that's free; it's you.
