Hidden gems of xterm
Last week I migrated from urxvt to xterm, because I noticed that beginning last year (2012), xterm can finally open URLs nicely. This feature was a blocker for me, since I read all my e-mails in mutt and I hate copying links.

During migration, I noticed several nice features of xterm so I decided to write a blog post about some. Let’s start.

Ubuntu virtual terminal cursor style resetting - Super User
Q: I am running Ubuntu 14.04 and using one of the virtual terminals (TTY[1-6], accessible via Ctrl-Alt-F[1-6]); I want to permanently change the appearance of my cursor from the apparent default, a blinking underline, to a blinking box. I can change it temporarily, but it is consistently resetting when certain applications are run. [...]
(me: good explanation in the "accepted answer"; quoted excerpt from tmux(1) man page provided the only command that worked to fix tmux after neovim left the terminal in a "garbage-writing" state: printf '\033[0 q')

tmux status-bar corrupted after catting a binary file, how to reset? - Unix & Linux Stack Exchange
Q: I accidentally screw up my tmux terminal after cating a binary file. Now my tmux is messed up. Detaching and re-attaching doesn't help, nor does a redraw (C-b r). Running reset only redraws the active pane, not the rest [...]

OpenSSH, FreeBSD screen overwrite when closing application
As pointed out by roens, FreeBSD does not include te/ti definitions in its default termcap entry, xterm-256color. However, it does include these definitions in a termcap entry for those who want screen clearing: xterm-clear.

Thus, an easy way to accomplish this is to set your TERM variable:

export TERM=xterm-clear

Even though it's a very late answer, I'm putting this here because many of the other solutions I've seen (including roens's) are much more complicated than necessary (involving modifying the termcap file with the escape codes and recompiling the db, or using a .termcap file).
