I think I responded to your post in Usenet, but in case
you didn't see it: check your color depth. I found that
samterm had problems with (I think) 24 bit depth.

I normally use 16, and that works fine. I think 32
should also work.  Try running 'xwininfo' and clicking
on the root window to see what depth it is running at.
