Hi, Peter --
The Motif version number applies to the Motif Runtime Kit (SUNWmfrun). You can
do a pkginfo -l SUNWmfrun to
check for the version of the kit, but the version
that comes standard with Solaris 2.6 should be just
fine. (No upgrade is used during development or testing.) I checked Sunsolve
for motif/cde bug
reports and associated patches that sounded like
they applied to what you've described, but found none.
I haven't seen this on any of our Solaris boxes...
Hopefully, someone else has some additional info for
