Using XFree86-4.1.0-15 but the problem exists in RH7.2 with no errata RPMs
In the XTerm.ad resources file, there is a line VT100*translations
Change the * to a . or vice versa. Restart XFree86 and let me know
if the problem goes away.
Thanks for looking into this!
I assume you mean the file
I've edited it to change *both* the lines starting
This has fixed the problem - many thanks!
