Looking at your code, it seems that you are passing the wrong option
to xterm:

self.parameters_list = ['-wid', str(wid), '-bg', 'black', '-fg', 'white',
                        '-geometry', '90x25']

You should be passing '-into' rather than '-wid'. It might also be a good
idea to pass the QX11EmbedContainer's window ID using QString.number(wid)
instead of just str(wid). Python may interpret the ID as a long integer
value, so its representation will include a trailing "L" - it's not
something you really want to pass to xterm.
