A kludge, should not be used.

I helped me with forcing xterm to send other keycodes, but the problem
is here. Feel free to report this as a bug. As far as I know all
X-Terminal programs are in sync with current termcap database, all but
xterm, which send broken key sequences to programs inside the terminal.

So, this ~/XTerm file helped:
*VT100.Translations: #override ~Shift ~Ctrl ~Meta <Key>Home: string("\033OH")\n\
                               ~Shift ~Ctrl ~Meta <Key>End: string("\033OF")

The early bird gets the worm. If you want something else for
breakfast, get up later.
