It's actually "X II" (II means "input inhibited") not X11 which is
something else entirely :)

Told you my terminology stunk :-)

Using IBM's java applet the X11 shows up, but the 'reset' seems to
happen automatically. Can I recreate that behaviour using tn5250?
Sure.  Just set the +uninhibited config option.

That didn't work for me, but that option wasn't mentioned in the man page either.
Looking at the change log I'm guessing this is it
Add "uninhibited" flag to Tn5250Display, for automatic release of Input
  Inhibited state when movement keys and functions keys are used.
  Defaults to false for compatibility with previous versions.

So I guess I'll have to update to the current version.
There was a .spec file in the tarball, so I tried to build an rpm from that and
ran into trouble.

It would be handy to do it that way so if you tell me where I'm going wrong there I'll retry,
but in the meantime I'll try the configure/make/makeinstall route.
