I'm not an Arch user but I notice they currently use motif-2.3.8
(which appears to be from ICS despite the package name openmotif).
That version is also in OpenBSD 6.4 and 6.5.

My DAW systems are running Debian 9 with motif-2.3.4. Debian 10
uses motif-2.3.8 but I haven't tried it yet.

I don't know if choice of window manager is relevant. I used
Window Maker for many years and recently switched to cwm. Both
have worked well with snd and motif. Also of unknown relevance:
none of my systems run dbus or systemd.

BTW I was incorrect about Void using Open Motif; it uses lesstif
0.95, released in 2009. IIRC that was used in earlier versions
of Debian and was quite crash-prone when used with snd.
