Thanks for the suggestion, but it doesn't work for me.

On the X11 Edit menu, while in xterm, the Copy shortcut is black and is
shown as command-c and appears to function until you try to paste and
nothing happens. Paste (command-v) and other edit commands are grayed out on
the X11 Edit menu.

Control-click in xterm gets me a menu, but paste is not one of the options.
In rxvt, control-click gets me nothing.

I guess I need to change my question. Why are the command- functions grayed
out on my Edit menu in X11? Do I need to set this with a resource file
somewhere? Shouldn't this work "out of the box," at least with xterm? Thanks
for any help.
