Description James Oliver 2000-01-04 00:20:09 UTC
I am not sure if this is the correct place to try to report a bug with this
particular piece of software.  If it is not maybe you could point me in the
right direction.

It seems that there is a bug with Motif that causes the Drawn Button
widgets to lock up after a random number of buttons have been generated.

Using the attached quick and dirty code fragment I can get the list of
100 Drawn Buttons in the button_rowcol widget to stop accepting/handling
events after about 2 redraws.  This is just a simple mock up to mimic
what is going on in a real application that locks all Drawn Buttons
after a seemingly random amount of time.  Most annoying from a users
perspective.  The specific version of Motif is 2.1.10 from RedHat.

Thankyou for your help.

Regards,

James Oliver

Comment 1 Jim Kingdon 2000-01-04 14:24:59 UTC
The Motif product from Red Hat is discontinued.  In fact, in looking for
evidence of it, I think we only shipped 2.0 and 2.0.1 - I don't see a
2.1.10 from Red Hat.

For Motif information, I'd suggest
