Yes, it sounds like the xterm is failing to initialize.  See if
you can start an xterm by typing 'xterm' on the command line.
Also try something like this:

xterm -T "TEST" -e python

This should bring up an interactive Python session in a new xterm.

If you can't get this working, just turn off the debug.use-xterm
pref as I described in the last email.  We will eventually replace
use of an xterm entirely to avoid configuration problems like this.

OK, thanks!
