Xterm fails character sets test in vttest
Binary package hint: xterm
Xterm version 229 produces two incorrect glyphs in the vttest version 2.7 (20030301) "Test of character sets". Specifically, the British pound symbol is not displayed in place of '#' on the UK / National character set, and the carriage-return character (a drawn CR, Unicode symbol u+240D) in the Special Graphics character set is blank. The British pound symbol is displayed correctly in the Special Graphics character set.
This occurs with LANG=C, LANG=en_US, LANG=en_US.UTF-8 . It also is independent of the font.
$ lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 8.04
Xterm has historically been very accurate with vttest. I am quite surprised to see this.
