Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

I just upgraded from Gutsy to Hardy Heron, and I noticed that xterm (/usr/bin/xterm) does not work after a while.

After booting the system, it works fine. I walk away, and when I come back (some hours later) the program segfaults. Im not sure how to save the core dumps- I tried to run ulimit -c 1024, but I can't find the core dump anywhere.

Xterm version:
 $ xterm -v

package name:
$ dpkg -S $(which xterm)
xterm: /usr/bin/xterm

Version of X:
$ X -version
