Bug#318280: -c not working properly with new xorg xterm

Package: xterm
Version: 6.8.2.dfsg.1-2
Severity: normal

With the old xterm,
"xterm -e 'while true; echo foo; sleep 5; done'"
would work just fine, now xterm pops up for a split-second and
"xterm -e '/bin/bash'" seems to work fine though.
"xterm -e '/bin/bash -c \"while true; echo foo; sleep 5; done\"'"
however does again not work.
