Or try another terminal emulator to see whether the problem persists,
or try fvwm. None is very appealing...

I'm afraid this kind of stuff is way beyond my amateur skills.

Just did it. Nothing seems relevant. My problem is not new, it's been
bugging me for some time. I have xterm-327 (the latest version
considered stable by Gentoo). I use reverse video sometimes (rarely),
but not recently.
It's puzzling that I'm the only one with this problem. Must be doing
something wrong, somewhere...
