Not sure if this will be what you are looking for, but after having issues with aterm myself I discovered the urxvt terminal emulator. It is in the package
It appears to have most of the same options as aterm, but is utf-8 compliant. One little quirk, which may or may not be important to you, is that new instances don't increment utmp and thus don't show up in "who" or "w" output. If you change it thus:
$ sudo chown root:utmp /usr/bin/urxvt
$ sudo chmod g+s /usr/bin/urxvt
-rwxr-sr-x 1 root utmp 180776 2005-03-21 21:51 /usr/bin/urxvt
Then it behaves like aterm in this respect.
