I'll see what I can find upstream, but www.lesstif.org isn't responding just
at the moment.  Anyway, Herbert replied again, and will try to help me
figure out what's wrong.

He said he could not reproduce the problem with viewmol.  I on the other
hand have the same problem on many lesstif programs: viewmol, ted, xsol.
ddd is okay, I gather it does not use the default fonts.

Has no one else reported problems with lesstif programs?  
Is there something I could have done to my system configuration, that
lesstif might hate me so much?
