Scrolling in xterm

First, you can position the scrollbar on the right by setting the 
rightScrollBar  resource or executing xterm with the -rightbar  option.  
Normally, you use the middle button to scroll an xterm
xterm version   works perfectly under KDE. Under GNOME, I 
had to use the middle button, which is what I normally do under CDE.
