xterm does not recognize CSI / ESC[

Hi all,

I try to use my xterm from SUSE 11.1 as vt100/200 emulator. Problem is that my application sends the CSI as 8bit (0x9b) instead of the ESC+[ commands. With the default settings, xterm doesn't recognize this character as CSI, but prints an inverted question mark

CSI works when I disable utf8 with "xterm +u8", but then other things (like switching to line drawing) don't work.

Has anybody an idea what might be going on?

appres - list X application resource database SYNOPSIS
appres [class [instance]] [-1] [toolkitoptions] DESCRIPTION
The appres program prints the resources seen by an application (or subhierarchy of an application) with the specified class and instance names. It can be used to determine which resources a particular program will load. For example, % appres XTerm will list the resources that any xterm program will load. If no application class is specified, the class -AppResTest- is used. To match a particular instance name, specify an instance name explicitly after the class name, or use the normal Xt toolkit option. For example, % appres XTerm myxterm or % appres XTerm -name myxterm To list resources that match a subhierarchy of an application, specify hierarchical class and instance names. The number of class and instance components must be equal, and the instance name should not be specified with a toolkit option. For example, % appres Xman.TopLevelShell.Form xman.topBox.form will list the resources of widgets of xman topBox hierarchy. To list just the resources matching a specific level in the hierarchy, use the -1 option. For example, % appres XTerm.VT100 xterm.vt100 -1 will list the resources matching the xterm vt100 widget.
