That's not utterly wrong, really.

DEC VT 220 and later terminals, which xterm was designed to emulate, had
"Find" and "Select" instead of the "Home" and "End" keys found on PC
keyboards.

Trouble is, I don't know exactly what emacs is doing with this information.

Are "find" and "select" bound to actual emacs functions are are these just
names for key engravings?  If the former, I'll have to leave it up to emacs
people to duke out what should be done about this.  If the latter, it
probably won't kill anyone to change those to [home] and [end].
