You can't really judge a terminal emulator without at least running the vttest program in them. That will show you the true level of functionality of the terminal itself. I have found that xterm does the best emulation, and I have to use it whenever accurate terminal operation is required. Some programs, like pine and others, really use most of the terminals features. I have also found gnome-terminal to be the least "standards" compliant. Rxvt is pretty good, and Konsole is also pretty good. Gnome-multi-term (different from gnome-terminal) is very good also.
