Well, this is a bug in the documentation, which doesn't provide
enough information. It wasn't even clear that XtAugmentTranslations
or XtOverrideTranslations was used. The behavior is explained by
the XtParseTranslationTable(3Xt) man page:
The XtAugmentTranslations function nondestructively merges the new
translations into the existing widget translations. If the new trans-
lations contain an event or event sequence that already exists in the
widget's translations, the new translation is ignored.
The XtOverrideTranslations function destructively merges the new trans-
lations into the existing widget translations. If the new translations
contain an event or event sequence that already exists in the widget's
translations, the new translation is merged in and override the wid-
IMHO, there should be a man page for Xresources / app-defaults.
"apropos" says: nothing appropriate. Shouldn't this documentation
(at least for the translations) be provided by the libxt6 package?
In this case, the bug should be reassigned to it.
Note that the XtParseTranslationTable(3Xt) man page is provided by
libxt-dev, though the end user who wants to modify X resources doesn't
necessarily have this dev package. I haven't seen a libxt-doc package
