Where is the terminfo file located../etc? ... when I do a set | most  it
lists TERM=xterm-color ... is this right ... I don't know if I even have
a true xterm package installed ... could this be the proble ... (Maybe a
libc5 based xterm and a libc6 based rxvt conflict??) ... sorry I'm not at
my computer to look at the xterm/terminfo stuff ... Any other Ideas?
