Changing Xterm Scrollbar Width

Is there a way to change the scrollbar width of a xterm window when running under olwm (Open Look Window Manager)?
I remember that, with Motif, setting the resource
      Xterm*scrollBarWidth:NNN
worked, but this seems to have no effect with OpenWindows.

As far as I can tell, the *standard* xterminal xterm(1) does not have the resource you specify available (This is true of Solaris and HP-UX)

You might want to try downloading a Motif xterminal, then set this resouce. OLWM is just a Window manager after all, and if the xterminal you compile/run has this configuration option available, you can set it. X will handle the resource issue.

Check out some X related ftp sites/pages for motif based xterms. Also, investigate the other x-terminal programs installed on your system. These might have this option (dtterm? cmdtool?)
