Heh.  Yeah, that was why my first tentative suggestion was for xterm - a
stable and good old choice :-)

But if mlterm could be shown to be as stable, or nearly as stable as xterm,
do you think it would suffice as the single default choice?

Or maybe the menu should present only one choice, but which choice is chosen
based upon locale to suit the user during installation. xterm for some,
mlterm for others, but only one "Terminal" selection available in the menu
hierarchy.  Does this sound like a good way to go?
