Stop doing that. TERM variable is the way user can say to terminfo
which is the terminal he is using, and terminfo will use this
information to print the correct escape sequence for the user
terminal. If you lie to terminfo then you will have problems, like
the problem you are commenting here. If you are using st, then set
TERM to st, st-16color or st-256color, but if you are using rxvt
then you must not use them.
