    Xterm scrollbar checkerboard pattern

    I have just converted from a hand-assembled Linux "non-distro", to Ubuntu 8.04, to save a little time by using modern package maintenance tools...

    My systems is almost where I want it now, but one little thing bugs me:

    The scrollbar in xterm should consist of alternating pixels in colours "scrollbar.foreground" and "scrollbar.background" respectively, in the language of X-resources.

    Unfortunately, the alternating pattern has become a pattern of vertical stripes instead, and I have no idea whatsoever how this has happened or can be removed. I can not find any X-resource to affect this, so I suspect there may actually be a bug in some X-component of this distro.

    Sounds strange, I know, so *please*, tell me that there is a simple X-resource setting that fixes this for me...

    try removing it completely and reinstalling.
    are you using a .Xdefaults or .Xresources file to customize?
    if so can you post it, maybe a screenshoot of the problem to.

    the main resource file for xterm is in /etc/X11/app-defaults
