Using LessTif the FileSelectionBox doesn't resize
properly when browsing directories. However, a simple
resize event (triggered with the mouse w/o resizing
it manually to the proper size!) brings the box to
the proper size.

So, this looks like it could be cured from within NEdit.

Similarly, switching to continuous wrap mode, the
horizontal
scroll remains partially drawn after the change, rather
than
disappearing completely as it should. Again an resize
event,
or splitting the window, fixes it.

IMO one shouldn't say, because it works with Motif it is a
LessTif problem. There are lots of Motif troubles that
NEdit works around, otherwise an NEdit executable using
Motif wouldn't do so well, either.

So, please do a bit of this for LessTif, too. In the
long run
it is most likely that the project has to switch to LessTif
anyway.

Cheers,
Joerg
