I'm building a replacement machine for a long serving workstation
that finally died a hardware death.

I've built a new machine updated to 6 CURRENT, and installed the
KDE metaport. I have a customize XTerm application defaults
file from a backup of the old machine. However, I can't seem to get
xterm to honor it. I'm running xterm from teh menu bar in KDE
with alauncher, and the -ls command line option. 

I use ksh, and I have my .profile set up to set the following
environment variable:


In /home/stan/.x11/app-defaults I have a file name XTerm that
looks like this:

XTerm*scrollBar:                        True

XTerm*pointerColor:                     Navy

But despite that the Xterm comes up in white with black text. So,
I put the same file in  /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults, but it
still does not honor it

Can anyone sugest what I am doing wrong?
