The locale resource has been there a couple of years (and can be set so that
you get the original behavior).

What happens if you set the locale resource to false?  (And are you ensuring
that there are no resource conflicts that override that).

"It used to be" is vague - one of the problems with the Debian package
is that I don't know offhand what version of xterm it corresponds to.
