It's not clear to me either (it's an aspect of the code that never required
redesign, so while I know where it is and how it works, some things won't be

My guess is that since the mouse actions are bound to the vt100 widget (via the
translations resource), that's why xev isn't seeing them - they're being caught
at a different level of the widget hierarchy.

xterm also modifies the mask when the application mouse protocol is in
effect - but that doesn't seem to affect what xev can observe.
