The new one I provided fixes that.

I don't think it is possible. We'd have to tell xterm to send
the mouse tracking escape sequences on other events than the
default ones, and I don't think it is possible.

We could map any action on <Ctrl-btn<n>> but not the sending of
the cursor position. We may be able to do something with
dired-button(), though.

That would involve install a new translation table, you could

someModifiers <BtnDown1>: string(0x1b) string("[M1") dired-button()\n\
someModifiers <BtnDown2>: string(0x1b) string("[M2") dired-button()\n\
someModifiers <BtnDown3>: string(0x1b) string("[M3") dired-button()\n\

and modify the code of zle-xterm-mouse so that it recognizes
those new sequences.
