I have the same problem. Also, I've noticed that, apparently at random,
charactars from a certain font will be replaced by '=' (or at least
something that looks like an equals sign).
The problem doesn't seem to occur just using one or 2 xterms. But after
running netscape (either locally or from a remote system), characters begin
to disappear. Running frame maker produces the same error, but less often.
