Have you tried with other "alt" keys?  There's always this issue about
Alt-vs-Meta, so normally xterm converts the Meta modifier into an ESC prefix
(via the "metaSendsEscape" which you seem to have set as well).
If you don't like to distinguish Meta from Alt, then maybe you should play
with xmodmap to turn all your Alt keys into Meta keys or vice-versa.
