Thanks for your report, Paul. We have had a similar report for a particular
IRIX X server (and X servers from Sun before that which is why we made that
Sun-specific fix), but that is the first such report we have had concerning
a Linux X server (perhaps because we haven't yet had a chance to get our
hands on a RedHat 7.2 system to test PLplot for ourselves in that
environment). What version of X are you running on your RH 7.2 system?
BTW, yesterday I turned some of your PLplot code (in the plTranslateCursor
function) into a function that was accessible from all front ends. So I
feel a bit like your son or even grandson in the PLplot family....;-)
