Yet there's no obvious reason why this shouldn't work in xterm and
mintty. The Shift-Up keycode follows the same pattern as the ones for
the other Shift-Arrow combinations. This suggests a configuration
problem, or perhaps a terminfo issue. Unfortunately I don't know
enough about emacs to try to diagnose this.
