You are probably right.

I have always preferred "xterm" over other terminal emulators, precisely
because it has that nice small text size. So I guess I'll have to keep
that ".Xresources" file around.

Just about anybody else who sees my screen says that everything is far
too small, and looks like ants crawling over the screen. But I like it
this way. I guess my eyes are adapted to small print.
Ever considered yakuake? Configurable re. fonts(ize), hit F12 and it drops

yes, for apps normally kept open. but for quick-and-dirty, xterm from a
keyboard shortcut always. maybe just ingrained in ancient memory :)
