	I don't have xterms.elc either. I read README file and I
_think_ Emacs doesn't read any .elc file when you put TERM=xterms,
because it doesn't find xterms.elc file. Hence, it doesn't assign \e[4~ to
select, resulting in no error. The problem, in my opinion, comes when
it reads xterm.elc and this file doesn't assign correctly.
