My .Xclients file

Description of problem:
I'm really not sure what component to file this against, so I'll start with xorg.

I'm running F10 on a Lenovo Thinkpad Z61T and using FVWM as my window manager.  After updating yesterday (3/3), I am unable to type in any "new" xterms launched after the initial X startup.  My ~/.Xclients file launches several xterms, and I can type in all of those just fine.  However, if I launch any more (either from the FVWM menu or from one of the extant xterms) I can't type in them.  They get focus just fine, and I can use the mouse to select text (the prompt).  But I can't type.  Notably, if I launch a gnome-terminal I can type in that just fine.

Prior to yesterday's yum update, my last yum update was on 2/17.

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

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Log in via GDM, selecing "user-script" session, which launches fvwm as per my ~/.Xclients.
2.  Launch a new xterm from the desktop or from one started from ~/.Xclients.

Actual results:
Utter frustration at xterm's refusal to take input.

Expected results:
Do as I command!

Additional info:
I've attached my ~/.Xclients file, if that's of any help.  Maybe I need to be launching some other new daemon now?

Dupe.  Sorry for the noise.
