That could happen if your TERM environment variable were set incorrectly
(e.g., to "linux" even though you're in xterm), though I don't know why it
would be. (In fact, testing it just now, this is exactly what I see in
xterm if I set TERM to "linux".) What output do you get from "echo $TERM"?

If TERM _is_ wrong, then see if it's being set in your .profile or
something. If it is, take the statement out.

BTW, attachments of that size are frowned upon. I suggest a link instead.
Also, in this case (where the image is of simple text on a plain monocolor
background), you'd actually get a smaller file by using GIF or PNG
compression instead of JPEG.
