That is odd. I shall check out a copy of elm and see what I can find

Ahh I bet you just ran the shell from a csh shell, didn't you? This
does not set $SHELL so tset was emitting the incorrect commands for

Hmmm very odd. I know that some new code for xterm was imported
recently so maybe that caused a glitch.

Please try the tset again with the correct $SHELL...
