file selection in file open dialog does not work

Description of problem: File Open file selection does not work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start nedit
2. Select File->Open
3. Try and select a file.
Cannot select a file.
Filename should become highlighted and filename appear
in filename box.
Nedit is linked against the openmotif-2.2.2 which has severe
bugs and is not recommended for use by the Open Motif group.
Maybe it should be built against the openmotif-2.1 series.
Unfortunately the openmotif21-devel package is not included
in Fedora for me to try.
openmotif has bugs -> changing component.
I can not reproduce this.
I need more information:
- Which openmotif version are you using (version-release number)?
- When does this happen?
I have since found out this is a well known problem with KDE/nedit
interactions. I guess you won't see this in Gnome.
KDE tries to enforce it's colour schemes on a few well known
applications (nedit, xv, xpdf, etc.) see directory:
Somehow the listselectors end up with the same colour for
highlighted text and non-highlighted text.
If you remove the Nedit.ad file in this directory the problem
is fixed at the expense of non-KDE colours within nedit.
An attempt has been made to fix this problem in nedit-5.4, from

This is misconfiguration in
/usr/share/apps/kdisplay/app-defaults/Nedit.ad. -> Assigning to kdebase.
it's fixed now in kdebase-3.2.2-2. thanks for your report
