  With this Lisp-Image, we use 1.2.

There are a number of bugs with Motif 1.2 and it's interaction with
OpenWindow servers. These have been fixed with Motif 1.2.2 (the final
.2 is important!) as distributed by ICS. It is important that you use
this version to avoid these bugs. You can check if these are the bugs
that are hitting you by running on a non OpenWindows server. If the
problem still persists then the problem is something else and you
should let us know so we can investigate further.
