and unfortunately not only anthena programms suffer, ie. netscape breaks
(try dragging a link from one netscape window to another, normaly the
would be opend in the new window but now netscape just quits..
- it doesn´t show the message, but a strace shows that it tried to
display the 
error message)

i guess the most programms which trigger XtMakeGeometry errors like gv,
could fixed (easyly or not..) but for netscape i wouldn't hold breath :(
