[Linux Mandrake 7.2 (RedHat compatible), i686 PC]

Start Grace.
Create a dataset.

Then do Edit->Data sets... , which opens the popup
"Data set properties"
Select the dataset in the "Data sets"-field.
The "Statistics"-field will now show the statistics of
this dataset.

Try to mark with the mouse any of the values in the
statistics field: this
is not possible. As a consequence: it is impossible to
mark a value and then
paste it somewhere else. This is very inconvenient.
[With mark & paste I mean: highlight the text with the
left-click & drag mouse
and paste it with elsewhere with the middle-click
mouse).

When I complained to Grace about this, I was told it is
a shortcoming of Xbae.

    I don't think it's entierly an xbae problem unless my solution
    goes against grace esthetic principles.
    Arround line 264 of setwin.c (5.1.17) they disabled the
    editing of cells using the editCellCB where they set doit
    and map to false in the XbaeMatrixEnterCellCallbackStruct.
    If instead map is set to True, you get what you asked for. It
    looks a bit wierd because the cells are right aligned and the
    TextWidget is left aligned so the text kind of jumps when
    you first click in the cell.
