Hi all.

I've beem happily using aterm for a while now, so I was
very surprised when I tried to run 'fp' (the free pascal
text IDE) in an aterm window.

I read aterm is based on rxvt, so I tried with rxvt,
and there, fp runs fine.

Fp likew VGA character sets, so I tried --font vga (and
others), and, though the font change is accepted, and
the aterm works in prompt mode, 'fp' does not start.
Until now:

fp works in rxvt and xterm
fp doesn't work in aterm (1.0.0beta3. newer versions of
aterm do not run at all, see other bug report).

Please suggestions...
John

I'm running aterm in xfce, and xorg X11
