Second, as far as I know, an xterm windows do not have main menu or fonts or options menu, but you have to manually set such attributes in .Xresorces file.
~$ cat ~/.Xresources
~$ cat ~/.Xdefaults
hmm - in a quick check of Ubuntu 12.10, the left-control-mouse menu is not working (bindings for selection are interfering), while the other two are working. I usually use the toolbar configuration; all of the menus are functional. Whatever problem exists is outside xterm.
By "not working", I mean that the control modifier is being ignored, causing a left-mouse action to do selection. xev doesn't show a problem in delivering the events.
Sending bug-reports to Ubuntu is on the other hand like writing to /dev/null.
