That looked like a strange enough message that I wondered what
it could be coming from. By UTSL(*) methodology, I find that
"input method" is "an X11R6 feature which deals with translation

Further casual reading of the source (I'm not so curious as
to spend time actually studying it carefully) suggests that
you might try setting the "openIm" resource to "false":
xterm -xrm 'XTerm*openIm: False'
If that helps, and you don't need the composite character
support, add that resource to your .Xresources file.

used, so I figured I probably need to explain: UTSL stands
for "Use The Source, Luke" (which is a somewhat date joke,
even if there is a new wave of interest in the Star Wars
