5.1-alpha: X primary selection being pasted in reverse video

I actually don't know if this is a real problem with 5.1-alpha or if
it's something related to my environment and/or build procedure

The problem is the following

If I paste in a terminal running 5.1-alpha a string stored in the primary X
selection, the string is inserted in reverse video
(actually, not a big problem, since I'm not experiencing any other
additional malfunction...)

I'm not in the position to debug this. I can just add some empirical
observations I have done about it:

=> no problem whatsoever if I run bash-5.0 (pl17) (everything else unchanged)
=> the problem doesn't seem to depend on the particular terminal
   program: xterm (my usual terminal), mlterm, vte (terminals I have at hand)
=> the problem goes away if I set the value of the TERM variable to
   something different from "xterm"; even unsetting TERM altogether
   fixes things
=> the problem goes away if I run screen in the terminal (this is
   probably related to the point above, as screen changes the TERM
   variable from "xterm" to "screen")
=> no problem if I'm not running X, eg if I make a selection and paste
   it with gpm in a console (again: TERM=linux in this case)

On the whole, it looks to me that the problem might be related (in some
way) to the interaction of 5.1-alpha with the terminal program when

Possibly related to this thread?

Apologies: as I said, my knowledge is insufficient to let me go deeper
than this

I enclose "stty -a" and bash build information below, if that can be
of any help

thanks a lot
