in vim left and right arrows should jump by 1 character but they jump by 1 word.
This is an recurring bug. It is fixed in xterm-242 but it's here again in xterm-243 and xterm-250.

I have -253, bug is still there.
It's not that the bug is "still there", but that the default
for the allowTcapOps resource changed (per Bram's request).
If you have a reproducible case where this is a problem,
you should assign it to vim.
So what do we do with this? Is it a bug?
It sounds like a bug. But it's less likely that xterm is sending
the information than that the user's configuration for vim is
causing vim to get confused. I've seen this bug in more than
one case, without getting much useful information other than
that it was fixed by the user changing something in their .vimrc
(minor correction: it's less likely that xterm is sending
*incorrect* information than the alternatives)
same problem here after upgrading my gentoo servers
fixed the arrow keys
