The first time I started an XTerm, I used Alt-F2 xterm RET.  Future
xterms were usually started from existing xterms (though not always).
When I log off, I usually do not manually shut down my existing xterms.
Thus when I log back in, they are re-started automatically.  Thus I have
some number of persistent xterms, session to session.

That's a pity.
