If a client:

1) works with Xaw6; AND
2) doesn't work with Xaw7; AND
3) wasn't using Xaw 6 internals

I'd like for a bug to be filed against libxaw7 with lots of details.
I'll pass them along to Paulo Cesar Pereira de Andrade upstream.

In theory, Xaw7 is supposed to be compatible with Xaw6, though a few
app-defaults might have to change.  (Xaw7 doesn't support the whenNeeded
value of a scrollbar resource, but that's not a big deal since Xaw6 only
supported it in a buggy way.)

Also see Xaw(3x).
