ESXTOP always run in batch mode

A colleague of mine pointed this one out. Seems something to do with the TERM parameter when you ssh to an ESX host. If you change it to plain xterm it works again in regular mode

/vmfs/volumes/4d2750de-8956fe05-a7a9-e61f133c816b # echo $TERM
/vmfs/volumes/4d2750de-8956fe05-a7a9-e61f133c816b # export TERM=xterm
/vmfs/volumes/4d2750de-8956fe05-a7a9-e61f133c816b # esxtop
