[Netkit.users] xterm options

The xterm windows that virtual machines start up in have several
limitations. I was hoping to pass extra options to the xterm command, but I
cannot get this to work. I tried by aliasing 'xterm' in my shell and also
adding the options to TERM_TYPE in netkit.conf. Neither has any effect.

Does anyone know how to do this? Or should I just use konsole or gnome (but
there are bug reports suggesting gnome causes other problems).

The features I would like are:
- a scroll bar
- the number of lines buffered should be increased
- output to a window should not reposition the screen to the bottom of the
scrolling region (the -si option to xterm should accomplish this)
