I read the whole thread, not only this mail. I know it doesn't help
much to say this, but it works just fine here.

I'm more than willing to fix a XmGrace problem but we need to find
what it is first.

Hi Volker,

I'd be glad to describe it...

This problem is reproducible, I've seen it myself and I've seen
similar problems described before. But I'm not sure it is an XmGrace

What happens is that, after a fresh installation of cygwin, cygwin/x,
XmGrace does not work "out-of-the-box". We need to (manually) run a
'rebaseall' to make it work.

If you waqnt to reploduce it, it's important that you start from a
fresh installation of cygwin. AFAIK, this is not exactly a XmGrace
problem, but has to do with newer X11 libraries, but I must confess
that I don't understand much.
