Eterm and incorrect display of mc


I have installed Eterm for its nice pseudo-transparency feature; but when I start mc in Eterm, it messes up the ASCII-layout of mc, using completely wrong symbols where lines should be etc. These symbols are too wide, so that the lines break irregularly etc. I wonder whether there is a way around that. Xterm displays mc correctly on my machine.

Can anyone help?

TERM contains xterm; the only hints of rxvt on my system are in /usr/share/terminfo/r where there are a number of non-readable files.

I don't know whether Eterm (www.eterm.org) is actually based on anything. As it is highly configurable, which seems to be its primary selling point, I suppose it's its own thing.
