xterm stops output

FreeBSD 5.4-STABLE/alpha, xterm-201.
Lately I suffer from the problem that xterm very sporadically appears
to stop output, possibly until a key is pressed. This is not readily
reproducible and overall very rare. It seems to happen comparatively
often in trn. Half a screen is painted and then output just stops.
I need to hit a key, usually ^R for repainting, to get a proper
display. It has also happened for non-curses cases, such as the
output of ifconfig. Never in vi.
I have not payed too much attention yet, since it occurs only
sporadically, I'm usually eager to continue with what I was doing,
and it took me a while to realize that there really is an issue.
In fact, I'm still not certain there is.
If my memory serves correctly, this has started since I upgraded
from xterm-200 to xterm-201.
Is anybody else seeing unusual behavior from xterm?
