	We have this line in basesrc/etc/root/dot.login:

eval `tset -sQrm 'unknown:?unknown'`

	Now, use that line or simply 'tset -s' in an xterm window and
	notice the error:

Terminal type is xterm.
Word too long.

	Start 'tset -s' in a xterm window, or let it start by .login and
	notice that it fails and exits.
