shift - fn keys not working

Since the past few weeks the shift - fn keys aren't working. For example shift-f6 to rename files. I tried downgrading, as well as using the latest git version of xkeyboard-config (which was earlier known to cause a similar problem with mc), but no difference.

It's impossible. Developing mc, I build mc many times per day. Everything works fine for me as in 4.8.3 as in recent master.
Key handling didn't modify for a long, long time. Please try remember what software you had updated before this problem raised.

Yes, i found that this problem only occurs within tmux. And i had changed $TERM to screen-256color for tmux a few weeks back, and that's the cause of this problem.
