Description of problem:
this is a regression. in RHEL 3, /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults/XTerm contains this comment:
! Bug fix for bugzilla bug #49315
this has been removed in RHEL 4. unfortunately, the named bug is inaccessible to non-employees. anyway, without this fix, meta keys (M-b and M-f to move a word backward and forward, for instance) doesn't work in Bash or other readline enhanced applications, which obviously is quite irritating.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start XTerm with bash
2. type "foo"
3. type Meta-b
Actual Results: I get the character LATIN CAPITAL LETTER A WITH CIRCUMFLEX (bugzilla couldn't handle the raw character :-)
Expected Results: the cursor should move to the beginning of the word "foo"
