What kind of discussion is this here?
I thought it would be an advantage to have a recent openmotif in the
next stable version. It's up to you if you unblock it or not.
If you would like to keep libXm.so.3 - create a report against
openmotif. In the past, old versions of libXm were always redeemed
by newer ones.
The intention of this bugreport is something else.
