What is your TERM variable set to? Probably xterm. Run this command in aterm:

CODE
set|grep -i term


And see what the output it. Then run the command in rxvt. If the result is different in rxvt, run this command in aterm:

CODE
TERM=<value>


Where <value> is whatever result rxvt returned. I usually launch aterm with:

CODE
aterm -tn linux


Which sets this variable to "linux" which seems to work for most things. I have just run into a problem with vim, however, where it doesn't function at all, and I have to revert to a value of "xterm".

Of course, there is always a chance that this has nothing to do with your problem...

i have TERM=linux but it's not work, so i see that mrxvt use xterm.

Now i have set TERM=xterm in aterm console and work right.

THANKS
