I'm unable to reproduce this problem on a fresh install of Fedora Core 4.
Please reproduce on a fresh install, and provide step by step details.

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2005-06-17 16:49:30 UTC
Also... what does this have to do with xterm?  You said you're using KDE
console, which is not xterm.

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2005-06-23 18:21:02 UTC
As reported, this bug report does not indicate a bug or problem with
xterm.  Since there hasn't been a response since the initial report,
I'm closing this bug as NOTABUG.  It looks like a local configuration
issue anyway.

If the problem persists, I recommend reporting it on one of the Fedora
mailing lists and seeking technical assistance.  If someone can narrow
the problem down to being a real bug in something, a bug should be reported
against the exact component that is failing at that time.

Hope this helps.

Setting status to "NOTABUG"
