I recently found out that the statistics line goes
blank, or sometimes becomes multi-line high, when the
incremental search line is opened.

I can reliably reproduce the 'blanking' as follows:

Start NEdit
% ./source/nedit

Switch on statistics line (Preferences->Statistics
Line)
Switch on Incremental Search Line
(Preferences->Incremental Search Line)

The Statistics line now goes blank, and I can't make it
refresh.

I have also been able to make the statistics line two
and five lines high, and sometimes it even occupies the
whole window (80 lines). However, I have no reliable
way of reproducing those cases. A screenshot showing
the five line case is attached.

I initially thought it might be caused by an old
version of LessTif so I upgraded that, without any luck

    As far as I know, we have never tried building NEdit with
    LessTif in Motif 2 mode. Does the same problem show up
    when compiling LessTif in Motif 1.2 mode? Is LessTif 2
    stable enough for real use? It might be a LessTif form
    constraints bug.

    I rebuilt with OpenMotif (version below) and is no longer
    able to reproduce the problem, so it seems to be a LessTif
    problem.
    What exactly do you mean by Motif 1.2 and 2 modes? After I
    got the LessTif source code, should I have used some special
    switches?

    This problem should be fixed in the current CVS
    version.

    So fixed. Will close once someone verifies.

    Fixed long time ago. Works fine now with LessTif and OM.
