I can confirm that on NetBSD 5.0 too, I have in ~/.profile:

 # locale(1) settings
 export LANG="it_IT.UTF-8"
 export LC_ALL="it_IT.UTF-8"

And with this settings I need to wait more than 3 seconds too to
open a xterm(1).

I use a script (~/bin/xterm) that set a temporary locale and then via
XTerm*loginShell "true" it come back to my favourite locale:


 export LANG="it"
 export LC_ALL="it"

 /usr/X11R7/bin/xterm "$@"

and here my ~/.Xdefaults:

 // xterm
 XTerm*foreground:      white
 XTerm*background:      black
 XTerm*faceSize:        13
 XTerm*bellIsUrgent:    true
 XTerm*visualBell:      true
 XTerm*visualBellDelay: 50
 XTerm*altIsNotMeta:    true
 XTerm*altSendsEscape:  true
 XTerm*pointerMode:     1
 XTerm*charClass:       33:48,35:48,37-38:48,45-47:48,58:48
 XTerm*utf8:            2
 XTerm*loginShell:      true

However, yes, this is a very very dirty workaround.

Ciao, Leonardo
