I did an upgrade a few days ago and noticed the same thing.  If I use another program 
for a few minutes then try to alt-tab or use the taskbar to go back to the xterm, the 
xterm will be unresponsive.  
The time the xterm is unresponsive appears to be related to the amount of time the 
xterm has not had focus.  The longer the xterm is not used, the longer it takes to 
wake up.
Right-clicking on the X icon in the system tray usually wakes the xterm back up.
