Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
     1. using "emacs -nw" in stterm
     2. xterm-mouse-mode
     3. M-x customize-variable
     4. Info-default-directory-list
     5. click with mouse, first button, on "[INS]" (try add new entry)
   * What was the outcome of this action?
     emacs "freezes" no reaction to keys or mouse, have to kill it.
     emacs prints code in the echo area like:
     down-mouse-1 ESC [ < 0 ; 3 ; 1 5 m ESC ...
   * What outcome did you expect instead?
     adding new info default directory path.
