[PLUG] my meta key

Since moving to XFree86 4.x (debian woody), I haven't had a totally
correct meta key.

- If I am at console talking to an xterm, gnome-term, etc., meta-
  stuff inserts special symbols, not acting like escape stuff. Despite
  having the following line in my .Xdefaults, which fixed the problem
  under XFree86 3.x:

    *eightBitInput: false

- If in that same xterm I type "emacs -nw", emacs gets it right.

- When logged in via ssh from work, bash gets it right.

So I'm guessing it's an X config thing, but I can't explain how emacs
gets it right in an xterm.

Any suggestions?
