Please ensure you're using the latest version of the xterm package before
making this complaint.

Also, /etc/X11/Xresources/xterm is a conffile.  See if you have a dpkg-dist

! /etc/X11/Xresources/xterm

! Uncomment the following lines to make xterm appear much like a virtual
! console, so that ANSI colors will make more sense.
! XTerm*background: black
! XTerm*foreground: gray90

! Make the backspace key generate ^? instead of ^H, per Debian keyboard policy.
! Make the delete key generate ^[[3~ instead of ^?, per Debian keyboard policy.
! Include override for BackSpace because older xterms do not understand the
! backarrowKey resource.
*VT100.Translations: #override ~Meta <Key>BackSpace: string("\177")\n\
                               <Key>Delete: string("\033[3~")
