Gnome-terminal uses the xterm terminfo definition, but under
Solaris 9 8/03, this definition is quite inadequate. It lacks
colour, and has the wrong number of lines, for example. The
following seems to be a good replacement. I haven't verified
every little detail, but it's a great improvement.
# Based on xterm-basic from XFree86, with modifications to suit
