What is "Bloq. num." key? I'm afraid I'm limited to English versions
of most of the software, and don't know what non-U.S. keyboards might
do. I'd be happy to add fixes, but I just don't have the resources
to even test out this issue.

I also don't have access to real Motif, and I know that V is NOT
with Motif, even in 1.22. It does work well with LessTif, however.
What this means is that V exposes differences between LessTif and Motif.
Believe it or not, even the LessTif guys don't have access to Motif!
Try the Athena version. It works on all platforms.

I try my best to make V easy to USE and PROGRAM. I have devoted less
time to the installation side, and given my limited resources of
time and equipment, I've not done too badly.
