here's my version information:

so here's what happens: whenever i scroll up using the
mouse wheel or scrollbar (the page-up key works fine
usually), the screen bugs out and all i see is like 4
lines of text repeated over and over. if i use the
scrollbar, it's usually only one line of text repeated
on the screen. scrolling down works fine!
i've included four screenshots of what i mean.
normal.png : before i've scrolled
after_scrollup.png : after scrolling up with the mouse
after_selectall.png : after i hit ctrl-a to select all
the text, seems to fix the problem - probably because
it forces a complete screen redraw?
uparrow.png : this was after i press the up arrow when
the cursor is at the top of the screen (therefore
making it scroll up). ctrl-a fixes this too.
this could possibly be a motif bug, because the same
thing happens in the help window that shows version
information. i haven't seen this behavior in any other
motif applications though, i'm trying a few out but i'm
not seeing anything. it might be the text widget that
nedit uses. i've tried both the statically linked
pre-compiled binaries and fresh compiled ones.
