That screenshot is showing one of the test-files from lynx.  I compiled lynx
with ncursesw, and ran xterm using the uxterm wrapper (so the locale and fonts
are setup properly).

The description of the layout (15% visible) in the original posting sounded
like a problem with Xaw7 (someone changed the behavior when it finds dimensions
that are initialized to zero - and I eventually traced through the library to
find that and work around it in patch #189).  Or it could be that I'm
misreading the comment.  Without more information, I can only guess.

The Xaw buttons aren't as attractive as some others, but my intent for that
was to make a toolbar with Xaw which could be adapted to some other toolkits
using the same general approach - allowing xterm to be built with different
toolkits.  (But since that's not the only thing I work on, it's not done yet).
