     We're having difficulty with accepting-values panes...
  Boy, does this describe my recent experience with them.  I have had
  problems with what Don describes, as well as the following:
  When a value is entered into an AV field that is the wrong type, the
  error message scrolls across the AV window and covers it with garbage,
  making both the error message and the original field labels
  unreadable.  What can I do to prevent this?
  Also, what can I use to make both the default AND the description of
  the type to appear?  I want the default, but I still want the helpful
  "a string" or whatever to appear.
I have a solution to this in CLIM 0.9 that pops up a window with the error
message to the right or left of the window you are working in.  I'll be
glad to send it to someone who might get it working in a more recent CLIM.
