It is supposed to work. That said I don't use X myself, so haven't
explicitly tested this.
Using xterm does require that the x server is already running before
xterm is invoked.
What happens if you run the following command from a cmd prompt:
xterm -e /bin/bash -l
If you don't want to run an xserver, try rxvt instead:
chere -iam2 -s bash -t rxvt
