Using xterm 355, htop only responds intermittently to mouse events, usually not at all. Downgrading to xterm 354 resolves this.

Additional info:
* xterm 355, htop 2.2.0
* Mouse events continue to work fine in Midnight Commander (the only other terminal mouse program I use regularly) so it seems to be some kind of interaction between xterm 355 and htop.
* No error messages were reported or logged.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Run xterm 355, then run htop within it.
2) Attempt to select a process using the mouse.
This task depends upon

Please report it upstream.

Normally I would but I can't seem to find an upstream bug tracker anywhere? I googled it and found nothing.

Reporting it via email to upstream I guess. Sorry for the trouble.

This also breaks mouse support in vim. In case @aaalto wants to mention in the report.
