Yes, I was able to reproduce this with xterm.

I note however that urxvt *doesn't* have a problem here. We're going to
put this down as an xterm bug for now (since we encourage the use of
urxvt anyway).

So, a solution (and better in the long run) is to update to rxvt-unicode
(it also handles resize much better).
