A coordinate such as -245.67 is shown in the Point Info
x field as 45.67, though by editing it one can see the
extra digits, and there are room for them in the box! In
any case, the field should be a bit larger to
accommodate -9999.99 (which seems the biggest
reasonable coordinate, at least in number of digits).

    This should have been fixed months ago, and for me has been.

    -9999.99 is not really a "reasonable coordinate" because
    both type1 and truetype only allow for integer coordinates.

    If you still have this problem in a recent build, please
    send me the results of xdpyinfo for your screen.

    It still doesn't work for me; here's my xdpyinfo.

    Should be a fix for this in the cvs tree.
