   | Width is generally between 140 and 160 cols.
 Are you creating a window that wide (xterm -geom ...) or are you
 stretching a "normal" (80 column) window after it is created?
 Actually forget that, I doubt that's (directly) the problem either.
 Next possibility, are you displaying directly into the xterm
 from an application running on the same system (ie: create the
 xterm then in it immediately (ignoring window resizing here)
 run sdiff (or whatever), or are you connecting elsewhere and
 displaying to it via ssh or similar?
 Where I detected the problem, I was on an 80 column window,
 ssh to another system, then stretched the window wider (and
 then used the xen console command to attach to a DomU initially
 for testing the -current system - but that's not relevant as
 the same issue was reproduced after that was shut down).
