I'm having trouble with nedit crashing with

    Program terminated with signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

I want to get this running solidly as its based on the old
NEXTSTEP "Edit" editor with extremely similar operation - basically
little for me to learn (plenty in other areas already!).

I've used YDL Champion Server 1.1 with its as-supplied nedit with the
above problem, and also compiled anew from the current 5.02 sources.
Both give identical results.

I'm running on linux 2.2.14p6 (compiled from Paul's sources) and
glibc 2.1.3
Additionally, I've done the following X-related RPMs:


Here's an example of a crash - it occurred after doing so editing and
then doing a
 cmd-shift-r to edit the file indicated drag-selected filename:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0xfd0f814 in XtIsSensitive ()
(gdb) where
#0 0xfd0f814 in XtIsSensitive ()
#1 0xfe9e044 in _XmClearShadowType ()
#2 0xfd06330 in CallEventHandlers ()
#3 0xfd06650 in XtDispatchEventToWidget ()
#4 0xfd07314 in _XtDefaultDispatcher ()
#5 0xfd07528 in XtDispatchEvent ()
#6 0xfd07a4c in XtAppMainLoop ()
#7 0x10004a68 in main (argc=1, argv=0x100b0000) at nedit.c:441
#8 0xfaa33dc in Letext () at ../sysdeps/powerpc/elf/libc-start.c:106

Anybody else using nedit successfully or having these problems too? Any
tricks to fix this known?
