Nope, the xterm works fine here to, it's just that VIM won't do color
highlighting, when it's term variable is xterm. However, setting it to
xterm-debian, as somebody else suggested, works perfectly. I get colors
and the xterm-specific options in VIM (mouse, title, etc.).

Ah, that works perfectly! I also read that you can get rid of those
menu buttons by setting some options.
Can you give me some examples of valid guifonts? Or can you tell me,
where I have to look for them?
