I think this is a problem related to Xft fonts.
If I remove my .Xresources file and run from a terminal "xterm",
there's no black screen.
But if I start xterm by specifying a TrueType font:
$ xterm -fa "monospace"
(or:
$ xterm -fa "Courier New"
$ xterm -fa "monospace" -cjk_width
$ xterm -fa "times"
...
)
I get the black screen problem.
I think this is the time to submit a bug
