Every terminal emulator I've tried ...

Has occasionally given me odd behaviors --- something that is not quite bug-compatible with xterm's own VT terminal emulation.
The native xterm and Putty (on Windows) are the two best that I've found.
As for most other "grumpy" features, I use screen. This is better than "tabbed" sessions for me (takes up no screen real-estate), gives me a searchable backscroll buffer, keyboard driven cut-n-paste, offers the multi-user option if I want someone to be able to connect and work with me or just watch what I'm showing them (read-only mode if I like), and lets me yank my text sessions over to another connection (detach and re-attach).
screen even preserves my vital text/curses applications through the occasional windowing system crash (assuming that the rest of the system is still accessible).
So I think I'll stick with my "screen session in an real xterm" approach for the foreseeable future!
