Hrm....is it showing up at the login screen, or after you've already logged in
and the window manager is supposed to take over? In the first case, then the
program is probably really "xconsole", and if you've got everything set up
right, you can just comment out the line that starts it in the XSetup_* files.
If it's the second case, then you need to check your system wide xsession
config and your own .Xsession file in your home directory and see if any
of those are what is calling up the pesky xterm.

Yeah...one of the pains of X is that it seems to use a million config files
and finding out which one is responsible can be kind difficult. :-)
Best of luck,
