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outdated and should be adapted.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!
