Package: xterm
Version: 324-1
Severity: normal

Settings activated via ~/.Xresources are parsed locale-dependent.

I'm running LANG=de_AT.UTF-8; if I put

    XTerm*scaleHeight: 1.3

in ~/.Xresources (and "xrdb -merge" it), it's ignored.
The setting

    XTerm*scaleHeight: 1,3

works, though.

Now, that won't work for long, as the /home directory is shared across 
quite a few machines; and not all of them have locales installed, and not 
on all of them I'm working with "de_AT", so on these the setting is invalid 

Configuration files should be parsed via the "C" locale, IMO - having to 
think about "," vs. "." in there is awkward.

Closes: 820803 940626 954730 954845
 xterm (354-1) unstable; urgency=medium
   * New upstream release.
     - Work around performance problems of XDrawImageString and
       XDrawImageString16 functions (Closes: #954845).
     - Temporarily set numeric locale category to "C" when parsing
       resources, so that scaleHeight and faceSize settings do not
       depend on locale (Closes: #820803).
     - Two fixes for left/right wheel mouse event reporting
       (Closes: #954730).
       + Filter identical button-events.
       + Correct order of button-range versus protocol type
         (see xterm 345).
     - Modify uxterm to make it possible to select locale C.UTF-8,
       e.g, if the user's locale is set to "C" (Closes: #940626).
   * Cherry-pick a fix from upstream snapshot 354a: build-fix for "make
     check" when building out-of-tree.
   * Update copy of XTerm FAQ to revision 1.392 (dated 2020/03/21).
