I would be happy with xterm if it weren't broken. No terminal emulator I have found so far can deal correctly with multi-line strings. I'm not talking about cutting & pasting -- I recognize the difficulties of that. I'm just talking about typing in a line with more characters than the width of your terminal, then doing some combination of backspacing past a line wrap, retyping text forward past a line end, and recalling commands from history.
Has CDE beem released under a free license yet? If so, I think the dtterm handles all this stuff properly including the cut-and-paste. I had the same frustrations until our work systems were upgraded to CDE from HP-VUE (A few years ago, and yes that is an upgrade).
