Bug#541160: #541160 xterm: heap corruption when changing window size

Hi Thomas,

while Julien has uploaded a new xterm package with fifo-lines disabled,
I can still help debugging the actual problem if this is desired. I
can reliably reproduce the problem with an empty (i.e. freshly started)
xterm with a bare prompt - once the buffer is full I can no longer make
it crash. My .Xresources only contains modifications to the font settings.

I'll do a few valgrind runs myself and report back.
