                            Patch #237 - 2008/09/14

     * improve  usability  of  TrueType  fonts  by  making  the  font-size
       switching  for shifted keypad plus/minus use the faceSize resources
       to  determine  the  order  of  fonts (when TrueType fonts are used)
       rather  than  the bitmap fonts, since their sizes may not be in the
       same order (report by H Merijn Brand)
     * remove  an  optimization of ConfigureNotify events from [241]patch
       #236 which seems to interfere with passing SIGWINCH to applications
       (GenToo #233836).
     * modify  handling of altSendsEscape to reset the eightBitInput mode,
       like metaSendsEscape (patch by Ted Phelps).
     * add  feature  to show the text-cursor as an underline rather than a
       box,   plus   command-line   options   -uc  and  +uc  and  resource
       cursorUnderLine to control the feature (patch by Paul Lampert).
     * update config.guess, config.sub
