I've noticed that aterm ingores the long option
borderColor and short option bd described in it's
I noticed this because I use ratpoison which doesn't
draw any window borders or toolkit stuff so when I seen
a white line around aterm I had a look in the manual page.
The same border appears in rxvt and the colour can be
rxvt -bd colour
rxvt --borderColor colour
or in .Xdefaults. None of these commands effect the
colour of the border in aterm.
See the attached file with rxvt on the right and aterm
on the left. The version of aterm is 1.0.0.
