RE: Need help with UX400 CLIM X font problem

From: Jeff Lankford <firstname.lastname@example.org>
You just know it is bound to be a fine weekend when you leave
work Thursday evening with an unresolved problem and come
in Friday morning to find the correct(!) solution waiting
in your mailbox. The problem was:
> I have a trivial CLIM application that works exactly as one expects
> on 3600 machines (ie, draws a window w/ a title pane and displays the string),
> but produces an error on UX400 (ie, font not found).
So the problem seemed to be in UX400 Genera itself, as
demonstrated in the correct(!) answer, supplied by Donald
H Mitchell <email@example.com>:

[Author's note: the source code patch, while brief, is not repeated here.
It is available by e-mail upon request.]
Thanks to all who responded (every little bit helps).
PS Donald -- Have you already submitted this to Symbolics as a bug fix?
Yes, when we found the problem and I think when 8.1 came out. I'll send it to them
again. Maybe with at least one other person having the problem, they'll incorporate the
solution this time.
