This sounds like it has nothing to do with startxwin.  I can't reproduce 
this, but do any of the following help:

1) creating a ~/.startxwinrc containing just "xterm &"?

2) changing that .startxwinrc to "run xterm"?

3) setting LANG=en_US.ISO-8859-1 ?

4) installing the font-daewoo-misc, font-isas-misc, and font-jis-misc
