Hi, I'm very out of touch lately (stranded in Atlantic City by the beach
with no internet, woa is me ;-), and I maintain nextaw. Is this the same
buffer overflow problem in Xaw and xterm that came up a while ago and also
affected nextaw and xaw95 and xaw3d, or a new one?

If it's a new one, I request that someone get nextaw fixed for me, I won't
be done with this trip for 2 more weeks.

I'm on a long trip, pardon any delays in my reply.
