We all have our own preferences and variety is one of the great attractions in GNU/Linux.
You might want to report this as a bug against the xterm package. If you haven't reported bugs before, beware that Debian's bugreport pages are read by spammers. I usually create bug reports with the handy reportbug tool (you can just type reportbug in xterm
), and save the created report instead of sending it, then create a temporary account in Google's Gmail, and post the bug report from there.
There's also a GUI frontend to reportbug but it's too buggy to be usable.
