Well, I think it is a good place... Anyway, you have to compile rxvt
without the fake-resources option. You could also use the latest
version of rxvt, 2.14, and NOT make it suid. If you want to have utmp
records, put utmp in a group together with rxvt, and give it group
write permission.

I already said that rxvt should not be suid root, but the maintainer
claims it should be like xterm. I agree it should be like xterm, ie.
both should not be suid root. This is a bug in X11, and I think debian
should correct it.
