It doesn't dump core, or prevent someone from using xterm, but would cause some heartburn. The process that's trying to do the cleanup will hang on "real" Unix systems - infinite loop. I was told about this on Sunday, and spent several hours finding about the problem and seeing that the fix is relatively small. (I tested it on HPUX and Linux). -- Thomas E.

This sounds like it is needed. Is there a place where we can pick up the patch, or can a patch be attached here?

Created attachment 689 [details] [review] diff between xterm 195 and 196 should apply cleanly with something like: cd [...]/xc/programs/xterm patch -p1 -i <diff location>
