Hello,

After updating all ports on 8.1-RELEASE, nedit has a problem.  The right
mouse button works ok in the toolbar but if it is pressed in the text
area, for example to copy a block of text, the cursor changes shape and
the X session becomes completely locked up.  I have to stop X and
restart it.  I have tried to deinstall nedit and rebuild it but this
didn't help.  It is nedit-5.5 with Motif 2.2.3.

Also, when nedit is started the following warnings are given:

Cannot convert string
"-*-helvetica-medium-r-normal-*-*-120-*-*-*-iso8859-1" to type
FontStruct
Cannot convert string
"-*-helvetica-bold-r-normal-*-*-120-*-*-*-iso8859-1" to type FontStruct
Cannot convert string
"-*-helvetica-medium-o-normal-*-*-120-*-*-*-iso8859-1" to type
FontStruct
Cannot convert string
"-*-courier-medium-r-normal-*-*-120-*-*-*-iso8859-1" to type FontStruct
Cannot convert string "-*-courier-bold-r-normal-*-*-120-*-*-*-iso8859-1"
to type FontStruct
Cannot convert string
"-*-courier-medium-o-normal-*-*-120-*-*-*-iso8859-1" to type FontStruct

These warnings have been happening for some time but nedit otherwise has
been working ok until the port update.  xpdf gives similar warnings but
seems to work ok.

What can I do to resolve at least the lockup problem?

Best regards,
Fred
