I noticed this bug present in every terminal emulator I've tested; I've
been writing a terminal abstraction library, as the language I'm using
lacks a good one.

I've been going around trying to have this bug corrected so I can start
sending the correct sequence and st is one of my first stops, in part
because it's easy to contribute to the code here and the code is simple
to understand. I spent all of a few minutes looking until I found where
I needed to change.

I'm interested in, at some point, trying to organize some manner of
meeting where terminal developers can define some psuedo-standards for
certain things, rather than ``do whatever xterm does''. Do you think
that's something that st would like to be a part of? I'm mostly
concerned with making function key and mouse sequences sane. ECMA-48
defines FUNCTION KEY, but xterm has an insane table of control sequences
it uses, instead.
