I get the same with my english keyboard in xterm.  Add the following 
line to the list called "_escape_sequences" in curses_display.py:
        ('[Z','shift tab'),

I'll include this change in the next release.  Be aware that many 
terminals do not send this escape sequence for shift+tab (some just send 
'tab') and provide an alternative keystroke for "tabbing backwards".

That's great. Let me know when you've finished your interface.
