this is out of my hands - we depend on the terminal emulation program
in the computer to emulate a TeK correctly.  Clearly you have
different emulations in the different computers.  To quote the help
file TEKSRV:

   You can choose which terminal emulator to use by setting the
   AIPS_TEK_EMULATOR environment variable before starting AIPS.  The
   terminal emulator should support Tektronix-compatible graphics.

So you could try other choices than xterm if you have them.
