In what way does xterm behave funny for you?

One of the reasons that xterm is choosen is that it exists on almost all 
systems. Rxvt or gnome-terminal (which hides the ratcursor) might be better but 
they are not half as common.

Of course I still have the opinion that all xterm-depending code should be 
removed all together. (I have never used it.)
