You removed the emacs code?  what?  ratpoison is made *for* emacs :)

Does xterm ever dump core when you start it from other rodent based
wms?  I don't use RedHat, what xterm version comes with RH6.2?

Perhaps we should make the autoconf system look for the path to xterm
so it will always play nice by default.  Adding a
--with-xterm=USERSXTERM option would be a good idea as well.
