    The same problem touches other sequences, like:

 · "\E[10m" (select default charset) is analysed as "{SGR:+BOLD}".
 · "\E[0m" (sgr0 with explicit 0) is analysed as "{ISO DEC G0}m".

    While at init/reset strings, some more small glitches:

 -2) "tput init" never sends is3. Instead it sends a second time is2.

 -3) "tput reset" runs iprog. This makes sense, but is not documented in
man/terminfo.tail nor man/tput.1.

 -4) man/tput.1 should say exactly what happens in which order during
init and reset, or point to "man 5 terminfo".

 -5) man/terminfo.tail clearly explains the init case, but the part
about reset is much less clear: Is iprog run? Are mgc, smgl, smgr, tbc,
and hts also used? It says "A pair of sequences" talking about 4. And
the fallback to "i*" strings is not described.

Bye!    Alain.
