Does urxvt work better for you than xterm? I'm using Ubuntu. And you?
If you didn't change anything else on your system, I'm not sure what the
problem is with colors. I assume you have an appropriate alias for ls
that adds the desired --color=[something] option. Check this command:
Are you using the bash shell?
I'm still seeing a lot lower memory usage for xterm than for urxvt on
Ubuntu for some reason, completely invalidating the only reason I have
heard for preferring urxvt.
