Yes.  And many people who administrate systems such as those simply refuse
to use more up-to-date alternatives like "rxvt".  In the interim,  I've
downloaded the debian source rxvt package and compiled it in my home
directory on the Solaris machines I have to use sometimes,  and use that
in place of the sun Xterm.  The system administrators aren't interested in
installing it by default,  it seems.

I agree.  I wasn't concerned about the buginess, but just wanted to make
