Problems with upgraded XFree86 packages

Today, I downloaded the new XFree86 (4.3.0) package from the Red Hat Network updates. I thought that, like my other updates, everything would work fine. It turns out, only ALMOST everything turned out okay. My 'xterm' has problems altogether on its own. It seems that it is having some display bugs.

My question is, is there a way to fix it my downloading a fix somewhere, or is there a way to go back to the previous version of XFree86? I'm not sure how to find out what the previous version was, but there were a number of packages installed.
