yes.  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).

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>
