When you run an application that uses box drawing characters (ANSI) from an aixterm, you get garbage characters instead of box characters.
To workaround this problem, use the aixterm -v.
The reason for this problem is that the old aixterm (3.2.5) used the IBM-850
codeset which allowed
the box drawing characters. The new aixterm does not use this codeset, so the
box drawing characters
are not supported.
