xterm terminfo file uses wrong mode by default

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ncurses-base

To take an example, the default xterm terminfo data used by Ubuntu has kf13(shift+f1)=\EO2P, which corresponds to xterm with the resource modifyFunctionkeys=0 (terminfo definition xterm+pcf0 from the terminfo file provided with xterm).

 However, it would appear that xterm defaults to modifyFunctionkeys=2 (xterm+pcf2 from the terminfo provided with xterm). ( This can be seen by using cat to show that F13(shift+f1) produces ^[[1;2P).

Ubuntu should use the right terminfo data, at least for the default configuraiton.

Is this symptom still reproducible in 8.10 RC or later?
