I've noticed the xterm entry we have in FreeBSD is somewhat inconsistent
with the one from other operating systems. For example: I've noticed
that we use erase-line to fill a line with a certain color, but this
breaks on OS X, because uses the default attributes while
performing erase-line, instead of the current attributes.

Is this a known issue?
