Bug#511138: xterm: regression - no response to keypad PgUp and PgDn

Package: xterm
Version: 238-2
Severity: normal

Upgrading amd64 from xterm_237-1 to xterm_238-2, the
keypad PgUp and PgDn keys stopped responding.  This
is an ordinary PC keyboard.  The dedicated PageUp and
PageDown keys are still OK.

(fixed font ASCII table)
   key              keycode   xterm_237-1 response
dedicated PageUp        99     <esc>[5~
dedicated PageDown     105     <esc>[6~
keypad PgUp             81     <esc>[5~
keypad PgDn             89     <esc>[6~

where the last two break (no output) on xterm_238-2.
These keys still work fine (9 and 3 respectively) with
the NumLock engaged.

Reverting to xterm_237-1 restores proper behavior.  The
difference is clear and unambiguous, since I can switch
installation easily with dpkg, and start one xterm of
each flavor in the same X server.

The rest of the system is a (nearly) up-to-date sid.
