Xterm scrolling very slow

Christoph, consider using Apple Terminal (in Utilities), rather than
Xterm.  This does not directly answer your question, but it was definitely
an improvement for me.  After I started using Mac OS a long time ago, I
discovered Apple Terminal as an alternative to Xterm.  As a native Apple
application, this freed me from a variety of idiosyncrasies with
Xterm's dependence on X11.  I never looked back.  The only drawback was
awkwardness with cut and paste between this and my X11-based text editor.
I got used to it.

I do not have Catalina yet, so I can not test your reported problem.
Perhaps someone else can say more about this Xterm problem in Catalina.  I
would also suggest bringing your question to an XQuartz or X11 support
