The .emacs is executed too late as well: if I introduce an error in the
code below (e.g. zzz before the first when), I can see it reported. In
xterm.el, the problem is:

  (if (eq xterm-extra-capabilities 'check)
      ;; Try to find out the type of terminal by sending a "Secondary
      ;; Device Attributes (DA)" query.
      (xterm--query "\e[>0c"
                    ;; Some terminals (like OS X's Terminal.app) respond to
                    ;; this query as if it were a "Primary Device Attributes"
                    ;; query instead, so we should handle that too.
                    '(("\e[?" . xterm--version-handler)
                      ("\e[>" . xterm--version-handler)))

    (when (memq 'reportBackground xterm-extra-capabilities)
      (xterm--query "\e]11;?\e\\"
                    '(("\e]11;" .  xterm--report-background-handler))))

    (when (memq 'modifyOtherKeys xterm-extra-capabilities)

If I introduce a network delay with:

  tc qdisc add dev eth0 root netem delay 2000ms

the problem always occurs. But if I also remove the above code, then
it no longer occurs.

So, the above (eq xterm-extra-capabilities 'check) test seems to be
useless, and there should be a way to disable it. IMHO, this query
is ugly and should be removed entirely in favor of checking the
environment, in addition to user side settings. If the issue is that
not all xterm's behave in the same way because of new features, you
can test the XTERM_VERSION environment variable. If the default guess
is not OK, the user should have a way to fix it in his ".emacs".
