Hey there. Thank you, I want to use the motif version too because a lot of
the fancy extensions only work in motif, unfortunately I tried it out and
ran into an issue where suppressing graphical updates does not work and
causes the user interface to misbehave because my software scheme mosaic
opens and closes a lot of sounds. The gtk version seems fine on this task
but the motif versions malfunctions and hangs. I'm looking for a work
around. I thought I would send this message to the list because my
follow-ups with Bill were off list.
