Four examples for "XM", 

        + xterm:
          It's in the original terminfo source for "xterm" in ncurses.
          However, packagers (on multiple systems) have interfered with that,
          splicing together the example terminfo from the _xterm_ source
          and overwriting the entry which I constructed for _ncurses_.
          The _xterm_ source doesn't have the extension.

        + konsole:
          The ncurses terminfo bases its mouse behavior on xterm-r6.
          Looks like I overlooked konsole when adding SGR 1006 to the
          mouse behavior, though it seems to be supported in the source.

        + xfce:
          ncurses has this aliased to vte-2008; but since XFCE terminal
          is just another wrapper around VTE, if you happen to be using
          some newer VTE underneath, that would be addressed by using
          one of the dated "vte" entries.

        + rxvt:
          That only implements the original xterm mouse protocol.
          urxvt is different - another story...
