Description Daniel Colascione 2008-07-29 19:37:33 UTC
Please add --enable-exec-xterm to the configure line in xterm.spec. It enables a
useful feature that has no serious downside. This feature is still disabled
without the user specifically adding a translation to the xrdb, and it appears
that Debian has been shipping xterm with this feature enabled.

The feature allows one to spawn a new terminal in the same directory that the
process currently running inside the xterm is located.
