Thanks for your quick reply.

Well, I've done a bit more experimentation. I'm getting the same
strange behaviour with all libgtk+ versions from 1.2.0 onwards.

I decided to go back to the old 2.0.36 kernel and the problem
goes away - so it doesn't look like at gtk problem per se.

Unfortunately, this isn't much of a solution since the 2.0.xx kernels
don't really work with potato on alpha. Clock craziness in particular.

Ho hum, I might try other 2.2.xx kernels or
go up to 2.3.xx.

I'm also forwarding this message to the alpha-list.

Alpha Guys, Am I really the only one to get this problem? Help!
