This is what I think you don't understand.  Using the thumkeyboard in 
Xterm is a royal problem.  It just doesn't work right, period, 
because you can't use it and see/read the screen at the same time.  
No cut and paste, and heaven help you if you are doing e-macs or 
vi ... because... depending on the remote system it often causes 
problems in that data previously entered gets lost due to focus
