Unfortunately, I can't reproduce it. Is this on a xinerama setup? Any resource settings for xterm? Which video driver is used?

It would help to have a non-random set of data which breaks it, since the cause would be some specific code sequence.
Comment 3 Miroslav Lichvar 2007-04-16 13:24:11 UTC
Can you please try xterm-225-1.fc6 from FC6 updates testing repository?
