I'n not running your version of Informix, so I can't help you directly, but there are several things you can try:

1)  you might try a different wyse50 termcap entry.  On most unix systems there is a /etc/termcap file.  On my system, here is the exampe in my /etc/termcap:

CODE

#
# w: Wyse (although some are "y" entries instead)
#
# This one is here just in case anyone ever finds a use for it.  Emacs gets
#  confused drawing mode lines when the terminal is in Wyse mode.  --tpm
# The problem with mode lines is that EMACS assume 1) that video attributes
# are in effect to the end of the line, not the end of the display, and 2)
# that the "ce" capability will, on any terminal with the standout glitch,
# turn off standout mode to the end of the line.  Neither are true of the
# Wyse-50 (or Wyse-30) in Wyse mode.  --gh
# This entry comes from Steve Hartwell.  I think he got it from Pyramid's
# UNIX.  It has subsequently been merged with the 4.3BSD entry by Toni
# Guttman, extended by Jeff Anton.  The trick of using protected mode for
# standout mode has been observed to well and truly hang the terminal up,
# so that "feature" of the 4.3BSD entry has not been incorporated.

Second, you might try using the terminfo database instead of the termcap file.  If the INFORMIXTERM variable is not set, the default variable is termcap. To use terminfo, set this way:

INFORMIXTERM=terminfo

For more information:

man terminfo


BTW, Tek-tips also has an Informix 4GL forum:
