I changed .xinitrc to twm and get the same xterm behavior :(

My best quess right now is that it must be something about the way Xorg 
build xterm or what libraries are on the CD.

Comparing libs on an older system with the CD (ldd xterm),  the older 
system has libXt which is missing on the CD's `ldd xterm`.  On the CD, 
but missing form the older system is linux-gate.so, libfontconfig, 
libxpat, and libdl.
