[fpc-pascal] aterm won't run fp

Hi all

Even though I don't have a solution to the previous problem, I already
have another one.

A while ago I tried 'fp' and didn't get anything. Not having time, I
dropped the issue. Now I tried again, and decided to dig a little deeper:

1) in an 'aterm', calling fp doesn't show _anything_, just waits for
Ctrl-C to exit to the promps (no menu, no gibberish.)

2) in a real 'xterm', fp works normally - I don't like xterms, because I
had some problems with multiple charsets and I haven't found out to make
them transparent.

3) I tried with 'aterm --font vga', then start fp - exactly the same. The
font changed to vga though, but no fp in sight. Tried several other
fonts, switched off 'aterm' transparence, just in case. 

4) Also tried to add -tn linux, though that's the default.

Can anyone tell me what's missing to get aterm to run fp?
