Hi, is anyone working on this? It's really annoying 8-).

I ran uxterm under strace and it appears to only look for UXTerm and _NOT_ UXTerm-color resources. Since x11-common is responsible for making it use -color, I looked for uxterm opening that file in the strace, but it appears to ignore that file. If I manually xrdb -override that file, it works as expected.

In conclusion, the root bug seems to be that uxterm does not (or no longer) consults /etc/X11/Xresources/x11-common Could this be a regression in Xt? Can this be fixed, maybe? Or is this an unintended side-effect of http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=570447 ?

Thanks,
