Any luck with this?

For what it is worth, xterm is obeying the manual settings here. Since you
have tried many things, maybe there are some conflicts.

Try opening xterm, in the title bar select "configure window behavior" and
then pick "Window-Specific Settings". If you see a bunch of entries for"
Application setting for xterm" get rid of them all.

Then try once again Advanced -> Special Application Settings and set

Maximize Horizontally - Apply Initially - and check the last checkbox
(these are just what I selected as a test case)

Close xterm. Next time xterm is run it is maximized horizontally here.

Hope this helps.
