Bug#280118: xterm: alt-. gives wrong signal to zsh

Package: xterm
Version: 4.3.0.dfsg.1-8
Severity: important

Upgrading to xterm 4.3.0 caused the (often used) alt-. to send the wrong signal
to zsh (4.0.4 and later) in viins mode.  Alt-. is used in zsh to insert the
last argument of the previous cmd line. 

The behaviour is as expected in emacs-mode. More importantly it is as expected
in viins mode in any other shell or the console. Downgrading to 4.0.4 `fixed'
the problem.

Also the colors reverted from 16 to 8 with this upgrade.  I have since
