I just solved this problem (or rather, it solved itself).  I had the
following in my .tcshrc -

switch ($TERM)
	case xterm:
	case xterm-debian
	xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources

I deleted that and things have been fine.  Why did *that* snippet cause
the problem?  I don't know.  It just did.

 because He would have.  I got into a fight with a guy and I forgave
  him.  It is true. Some guy hit my fender and I said unto him 'Be
  fruitful and multiply.'  But not in those words." -- Woody Allen
