If a user hits a key that isn't appropriate e.g. hitting an undefined Function key 'X11' shows at the bottom of the screen and nothing further c an be done until you hit Control-R to 'reset' it.
It's actually "X II" (II means "input inhibited") not X11 which is something else entirely :)
Using IBM's java applet the X11 shows up, but the 'reset' seems to happen automatically. In other words you can just keep going if you make a mistake. Can I recreate that behaviour using tn5250?
Sure. Just set the +uninhibited config option.
