I don't know, but if you build with Motif, you can run with those
buttons, Dave Phillips made. They can be useful for a start and later.
Personally I do prefer the Gtk version now and include Kjetil's
snd_conffile.scm into ~/.snd instead, slightly adapted. With
gtk-themes it just looks much better. Maybe it's possible to add a
toolbar to the Gtk-version, as well. I'll need to explore that some

This happend to me as well, but it has snothing to do with the
toolkit. It happens, when you have a small selection active, that you
might not be able to see. Looping this will make Snd act like an
oscillator. Try "Ctl-g" several times in that case.  I did unset
looping in ~/.snd because of this: 

;; Unset looping again here:
(define islooping #f)
