Most of the rxvt family, including aterm, are known to not work properly.
 urxvt *should* work as should gnome-terminal.  xterm might or might not
depending on exact version.

I believe lxterminal, Terminal, and gnome-terminal all are based on the
same Gtk+ VTE widget and all should work the same way.  (They are NOT based
on xterm.)
