RE: motif problem
I just downloaded the latest build of lessTif last week. I have never used
it or Motif before. I just wanted to see if V modal dialog I had written
would work well with it. I have seen messages on this mailing list that
Motif was better than Athena widgets. I am using Redhat Linux 6.2 and all
of the X and Gnome stuff that comes with it.
I will try openMotif.

I haven't tested V with the latest LessTif - in fact there has always
been some compatibility problems with LessTif. I have used the latest
OpenMotif version, which is free and seems more stable than LessTif.
Perhaps you could investigate switching to OpenMotif?
Or - which version of LessTif are you using? On Linux? Which XFree?
I might find some time to investigate, but can't promise.
