Description Michael Meissner 1999-06-09 12:53:40 UTC
If I exit the X server via alt-control-backspace, the xterm
provided with RedHat 6.0 does not seem to terminate.  If I
run the 5.2 xterm binary from your XFree- it does
terminate when the X server goes away (as well as every
version of xterm I have ever used in the last 11-12 years).
This is a major annoyance.  I have temporarily worked around
the problem by using the 5.2 version.

You need to install utempter-0.5-2 to fix this problem.

An errata is due soon.
