Hi Martti,

Yes you have right, some explanations are missing:
1/ dvtm work well with another terminal emulator (xterm or xfce
terminal) on the same computer that has issue with st.
2/ on both computer (one that works with st and the other), language,
font and shell configuration are the same.
3/ on both computer dvtm ans st configuration are the same and are the
default one.
4/ the st version installed on both computer is the last git relase
compiled on the computer (I do not try to copy binaries and execute it
on the other computer, I will try it). The version is from commit
