1.231.1. RHBA-2009:1611: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as errata RHBA-2009:1611
An updated xterm package that fixes a bug is now available.
The xterm program is a terminal emulator for the X Window System. It provides DEC VT102 and Tektronix 4014 compatible terminals for programs that cannot use the window system directly.
This updated package includes the following bug fix:
* missing pointer checks could cause xterm to SEGFAULT when the xterm window was resized during initialization. Pointer checking has been improved with this update and resizing an xterm window during initialization no longer causes xterm to crash. (BZ#540534)
All xterm users should upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
