What I have noticed about this is that .Xresouces does indeed work for
controlling xterm and what not, but you have to restart X (or at least log
in again) in order for the changes to take effect, where as with
.Xdefault the changes took place imeadiatly. And I'm still slightly
confused as to why .Xdefaults seems to work all 5 of the other debian
boxse with almost the exact same configuration. Has something changed
recently that would have caused this?
