Package: xterm
Version: 4.3.0.dfsg.1-1
Severity: normal

I tracked utf8 problem I recently had on my workstation down to a change
in behaviour in xterm: the current version no longer enables unicode
support even itf the XTerm*utf8 resource is set or the -u8 commandline
option is given if the environment does not have LC_CTYPE (or LANG
I suppose) set to a unicode locale.

I disagree with this change for a few reasons:

* it broke a setup that has been working for well over a year,
  possibly multiple years

* xterms are frequently launched from applications that are started
  before a full environment is setup but at a time when the X resources
  are properly loaded. This is no longer supported

* ignoring even a commandline option without giving a warning is imnsho
  bad behaviour
