[arch-general] Xterm urgency hint

Hi folks,

I've just run into a strange problem.  In order to highlight terminal
windows that require my attention, I make the application running in the
window beep, and I have set xterm*bellIsUrgent:true.  The problem: xterm
seems to simply ignore this setting.  I can also go into the xterm menu
and activate/deactivate bell urgency, but it makes no difference.  I
always hear a beep instead of the window's urgency WM hint being set.

I'm almost certain that's an upstream bug introduced fairly recently
because I had the same problem on my Debian machine.  Does anybody have
a clue where to report this bug?  I simply can't find a decent project
web page for xterm.
