In duplicate bug: 139846

Per Steinar Iversen comments:
"The problem seems to be solved if the new -Y option is passed to ssh
and not -X as in previous versions."

Specifically, if you add the -Y to the ssh to the FC2 machine then the
launched xterm won't exhibit this problem. (worked for me anyway).
