Sorry, now I mixed up some things and gave you the wrong
information. My last statement was wrong.

Correst is: Xserver on local host (eg. hcl exceed), then login via xdm
to remote Debian host. /etc/X11/Xresources and xterm from there.

I don't know why it is working from if I login locally into a debian
box, but not if I come from remote.
