Description of problem:
I have been using rxvt in RH 7.0 and 7.1 and have found no difference
in the output of 'make menuconfig' compared to that of xterm. However, when
I upgraded to RH 7.2, the screen looks very different (characters > ASCII
127 not rendering correctly)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Launch rxvt
2. su to root
3. cd to directory containing source of Linux kernel
4. Type 'make menuconfig'
5. Observe screen 
6. Do the above steps 2-5 in an xterm window

Actual Results:  This is best described with a screen dump. I'll provide
screenshots of 
a) make menuconfig
b) mutt showing a threaded view of enigma-list
