I'm surprised, but my testing confirms your read of the code.  Basically, if I set my font size small enough and make my window big enough to get more than 233 columns on the screen, the application I've been testing with does not respond to clicks beyond column 233.

That clears it it all up... but in a sad kind of way.  X10 it is.

Looking at init_xterm_mouse() in the ncurses source code[1], it works
like this:

- if the terminfo entry has an XM string, ncurses parses it to extract
the mouse mode
- otherwise, if the terminfo entry has an XM integer, ncurses assumes
it's the mouse mode (unknown values are mapped to 1000)
- otherwise, ncurses just assumes mode 1000.
