Details

Updated xterm packages that fix various bugs are now available.

The xterm program is a terminal emulator for the X Window System. It
provides DEC VT102 and Tektronix 4014 compatible terminals for programs
that cannot use the window system directly.

This update fixes an issue with multiple utmp entries being created by
xterm -ls, and an issue with using the '-into' and '-e' options simultaneously.

All xterm users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
resolve these issues.
