I've made a post on this issue, also asking for help. I've done some
research on my Sarge machine. Previously, the feature was working
under Woody, and Potato, but those installations no longer exist.
1) xterm does not have this feature.
2) Both Gnome terminal and Multi-Gnome terminal had the feature in
3) Multi-Gnome terminal seems to have a modified version of the
feature, but there appears to be a bad interaction with some new
