A strange bug in xiterm2?

I'm not sure whether this is a bug in xiterm2, in AS (1.5 beta4,
unpatched), or in joe, so bear with me.  It's very hard to reproduce, so I
thought I'd ask & see if anyone else has had it happen.

If I have one xiterm2 window open (so far it's only happened while using
joe, but that's possibly because it's my fav. text editor), and I
repeatedly switch back & forth between it and some other xiterm2 window,
one of them will suddenly lock up, repeating the last keystroke in that
window over & over again.  It eats up the system's resources, and can only
be stopped by killing the xiterm2 window.

I've had it happen _in_ the window where joe is, and also _in_ another
window (reading a file using less).

Anyone else?
