Damn, I solved the problem.  The one change I did make to my X
configuration, which was niggling at the back of my mind, was when I changed
the fixed font (in /etc/X11/fonts/misc/xfonts-base.alias) to default to
ISO10646-1 encoding to help the transition to UTF-8, instead of ISO8859-1.
And this was precisely the problem.

Changing fixed back to ISO8859-1 restores the lesstif applications.

(I only really need the ISO10646-1 font for xterm, so I've now got that
working properly by putting
xterm*font: fixed-utf-8
into ~/.xResources).

Thanks for your help in guiding my mind to the right solution!
