The problem:

Copy/Paste functionnality stops working after a few
lines are copied... init 1 or reboot is required to
enable copy/paste again (but only for a few moments!).

The packages tested:

nedit-5.1.1-5.i386.rpm (from Red Hat for RH Linux 7.1)

nedit-5.1.1-1.glibc.i386.rpm (from nedit.org)

Tried with both these Motif-clones:

openmotif-2.1.30-8.i386.rpm
lesstif-0.92.0-2.i386.rpm

Tried under both GNOME and KDE. Also tested with a
remote X-Windows session to a second machine with the
same problems.

Solution:

Uninstalling the rpm packages and recompiling from
source against openmotif seems to have solved the
problem (nedit-5.1.1-src.tar.gz).

(I tried to submit a bug report in RH Bugzilla but
couldn't find a reference to nedit...)

    Nothing which could be "fixed" - we can only try to provide
    "better" binaries this time?! If I understand correctly the
    Motif lib being used was the culprit?!

    5.2 is almost in beta. Close this report, since it's
    outdated.
