You are probably setting the geometry small accidentally. If you give a
resource specification like this:

		xterm*geometry: 80x24

then you are asking for all widgets under xterm to have their geometry set to
80x24. For the main window, this is OK, as it uses characters for its size.
But its popup menus don't; they are in pixels and show up small. To set only
the terminal widget to have the specified geometry, name it explicitly:

		xterm*VT100.geometry: 80x24
