i tried it with your options and whilst the whole thing looks pretty
swell, PgUp / PgDn don't work for me still.

SXCE build 86. WindowMaker. Worked flawlessly before 228.

[hhamdani at asagao-jkk ~]$ env | grep LC
[hhamdani at asagao-jkk ~]$ env | grep LANG
[hhamdani at asagao-jkk ~]$ env | grep XT

I unset LANG, started an xterm, checked the env, there's no locale set
whatsoever except for the three XTERM variables above. Still no PgUp /

Thanks for any further suggestions you may have.
