yes (fixed by removing all of the customizations - such as the history for the
"run" command, which is how I'm invoking xterm since gnome and kde insist on
sweeping xterm out of sight).  For the startx approach, I've a script run from
.xinitrc which copies things back/forth, but haven't seen how to do the
equivalent in gdm, etc.

I haven't finished investigating the handful of reports about reverse video -
they all seem to be the same, something that isn't obvious (observer bias)
about how the resource files are setup.  I do see that running xrdb with the
"same" resource file as in app-defaults seems to lock down the patterns more
than if xrdb isn't used.  But I have more investigating (learning) to do.
