Thanks, I will test xterm as you suggest. In the meanwhile, I welcome any
insights from all Ubuntu users. Thanks.

Thanks for the reply but it was a mistype on my part. From what I can
gather, I should be using xt5250 and not tn5250. xt5250 however fails
to run for me and display a number of errors:

Yes, using xt5250 is preferable as it sets up an xterm for you. Using
tn5250 still works. Looking at the errors below it looks like something
strange is happening with the xt5250 script. Test this by starting an
xterm (you need to use xterm, not some other kind of term like rxterm or
gterm or konsole) and then running tn5250 <session-name> inside that
xterm (where <session-name> is the name of the session you have defined in
$HOME/.tn5250rc or simply use the hostname of the AS/400).

These look like xterm is behaving strangely on your system. Maybe this is
an Ubuntu problem - any other Ubuntu users want to check this?

if you want to understand why that is, there are many good books on
the design of operating systems. please pass them along to redmond
when you're done reading them :)
