A new xterm package closes a known security vulnerability which could allow a user assisted attacker to execute arbitrary command.  For details see:  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-2383 

UPDATE: New packages for VL 5.9, VL 5.9.1 and VL 6.0 are currently in the testing repository.  They will be moved to patches once we have adequate user testing.
