Yes, i had that 'feature' too. Looks like a bugglet in function
'GetCmnString(...)' -- the code should test for the special case
of reading 0 characters, allmost (allways?) an indication that the
file stream is empty, especially when called from 'XtAppAddInput(...)'.
A quick fixup:

  n = read(*fd,buffer,4);
    if (0 == n)

I'm shure there's a more Xlibish way of doing this but i haven't written
raw X code for quite a while.
