Remove the "smkx" capability from the xterm terminfo description.
The function and arrow keys are described with the "normal"
sequences in the xterm description, but the smkx capability
switches the emulator into sending the "application" sequences.

I may have this backwards, and my VT100 terminology may be
lacking, but if you get rid of "smkx" everything will work OK.
