Description of problem:
When I try to start an xterm, it fails.

gnometerminal does work, however.

[mpeters@gourmet ~]$ xterm
xterm: Error 23, errno 22: Invalid argument
Reason: spawn: ioctl() failed on TIOCSETP
[mpeters@gourmet ~]$

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open gnometerminal
2. xterm

Actual Results:  xterm: Error 23, errno 22: Invalid argument
Reason: spawn: ioctl() failed on TIOCSETP

Expected Results:  an xterm window

Additional info:

xterm works fine for me on x86 rawhide, this only seems to be a problem on my ppc.
