The fix I made only applies to a case where the font doesn't contain
line-drawing characters (so I'm curious if it's the same case you're
reporting, or some other corner that has been overlooked).  It's easy
to check if the line-drawing characters are missing (the control right
mouse menu has an entry which can suppress xterm's built-in line-drawing,
and use whatever the font actually does).
