I have removed that line again, because I have found a better solution.
The problem with my TERM settings was somewhere else. I had to edit a line
in /etc/ttytab:

console "/usr/sbin/getty console"	st52	on secure

In the original easymint distribution there was "vt52" instead of "st52",
which was why pine (among others) wouldn't work on my login screen. Now,
when I start XaAES, I still have TERM=tw52 in my TosWin2 window. And
without GEM, on my login screen, TERM=st52 is automatically set.

After that I went on and have now succeeded to get vconsoles installed and
running. For these (ttyv1..ttyv9) I have chosen stv52 as TERM type. I
tried stv52c, but got messages that this term type doesn't exist ? Unless
someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong, I'll do some more studying to
get color on my console screen(s). But in mono it's working great.

Besides having 10 virtual full screen console screens - which is cool
already - there is another small but nice side effect: The vconsoles don't
suffer from the bug, caused by NVDI, that the cursor is invisible before
XaAES/N_AES is started. Did you know that ?
