Inside, Yaakov says
"* xterm is no longer started by default.  Users may start their choice
of terminal from the menu."

So, let me beg for an excuse, I should have really read that earlier. However, search engines did not give me that message and

misled me, since it said "Task manager shows the startxwin.exe process starting, spawning XWin.exe and xterm.exe,..." This FAQ entry is outdated and should be adapted.

In any case, let me thank you for you help and links!
