uuhh, it works now... not 100% sure whether this is because I switched
back from 2.6.1-rc1-ben1 to 2.6.0-ben1 or happened in the recent apt-get

unfortunately not really. There is a thread I started at lkml
(http://www.ussg.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0401.0/0513.html) but no
solution... all that is known is that nicks scheduler does not make this
weird scrolling issue happen and that buffering the xterm output
resolves this issue (i.e. ls -l /usr/bin | dd bs=1024 ... and that it
appears in quite many terminals but e.g. Eterm.
