Thanks for the report.  A lot of these problems need to be analyzed in more
depth before we can solve them.

Is this problem happening under Linux as well, given the same X server
configuration and version?  I would like to know if this is a X server
hardware problem independant of the OS or a problem specific to the
Hurd compilation.

Is this in an xterm?  It is known to be broken.  Try rxvt, which works.
However, if somebody could work on a fix for that (maybe together with the
xterm maintainer), that would be great.
