The X11 problem is that the program is expecting the X server to have
the full set of X11r6 fonts.  Changing the libraries won't help, you
need to be runnning an R6 server on the screen you are looking at.

Help is on the way ...


As for the new one:

Gulp!  This doesn't happen on our Sun version.  My Intel box is at
home (and runs FreeBSD anyway).  Can anyone else with Linux version
confirm this?
