If I had something like that where I could test it, I'd see if I could use
strace to show which files were opened on startup. iirc, a setting from
xrdb wouldn't show up in this way, but resource settings would.

(For this purpose, xterm runs fine without setgid, in case that

something like

  strace -tfo foo.out xterm

would show that. (I expect it to be large - compressed attachments are
nice ;-). Tweaking uxterm to get the same information can be done by
editing the last line of the script.
