That mail is ancient history.  I followed up in
with explanation why I had those problems.

Finished, see

What do you mean by "does not work"?  Are the problems with the mouse,
or can't you even open the menus with F10 and then navigate with arrow
keys or with C-f/C-b/C-n/C-p?  The latter certainly works for me on

If the problem is with the mouse, then xt-mouse indeed does not work
(it starts tmm-menubar instead).  I could not test with GPM, and I
don't know what is iterm2.  I don't have access to these environments,
so the text-mode mouse is only tested on Windows text terminal.
Details of why things don't work and patches are welcome.
