Bug#286067: xterm iconFont and utf8 support

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

XTerm.VT100.iconFont does not correctly support UTF8: the font is not used if xterm is started with UTF8 on but you can switch to UTF8 by tek menu _after_ you started the xterm. Therfore the font usage is also inconsistent.

i.e. export LANG=en_US.UTF8. Start xterm and it does/can not use the default font "nil2" if the XTerm.VT100.locale uses UTF8 (or XTerm.VT100.utf8 is set).

(to prove this use a window manager that supports icons i.e. fvwm and set the X resource "XTerm.VT100.activeIcon: true".)
