Updated openmotif packages that fix three bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The openmotif packages include the Motif shared libraries needed to run applications, which are dynamically linked against Motif, as well as MWM, the Motif Window Manager.
- Under certain circumstances, closing an application using a text or a combo box widget could result in an invalid memory access for widgets that were already destroyed. A patch has been provided to address this issue and freed memory is no longer accessed in the described scenario.
- Prior to this update, the insertion cursor of a text widget could have a shadow border line under certain settings. This bug has been fixed and the cursor now displays correctly at all times.
- Due to 32-bit time stamp issues, attempting to copy and paste on a 64-bit architecture using the clipboard could fail occasionally. With this update, the underlying source code has been modified to ensure the time stamp always contains a "CARD32" value, so that copy and paste on 64-bit architectures works as expected.
Users of openmotif are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
