Running Nedit 5.3 on Redhat 7.3 and now on Redhat 9.0
it crashes
frequently when closing one of the editors open windows.
We use "nc" to open multiple files for reading in the
same editor.
Quite frequently (but no all of the time) when we
close one of the
windows with the window mangers "X" button Nedit
crashes with the message:
"XtPopdown requires a subclass of shellWidgetClass".

We are now running a stock Redhat 9.0 system with
Redhat updates.
This has: Nedit 5.3-4, OpenMotif 2.2.2-14

    This is a bug in OpenMotif 2.2, which is unstable.
    We only support OM 2.1.30, which is rock solid.
    Unfortunately, RH chooses to build NEdit with OM 2.2.

    You can find pre-compiled binaries (including an rpm) that
    use OM 2.1.30 at our website:
    http://www.nedit.org/download.shtml

    You can also try out our latest release candidate:
    ftp://ftp.nedit.org/pub/beta/executables/

    Thanks for the info, I will try OpenMotif 2.1.30.
    As a matter of interest has this bug been submitted to the
    OpenMotif
    developers and do you know if a later version of OpenMotif
    cures the
    problem.
    Cheers again.

    AFAIK, all of the 2.2 versions have the problem.
    I have submitted a bug report to OM.
