NEdit still crashes

Haven't had a look at the sources of our modified NEdit yet, but they
enhanced it somehow. Many buttons which call many functions from a library
named libtool (no, nothing to do with GNU libtool).

I think we have to use LessTif because we cannot use Open Motif on Windows,
since it isn't an open OS. I think that's what I read in the lincense for
Open Motif. And I don't think they will give me money to buy Motif, since
this project is meant to be a "test".
Anyway, one guy ported this huge project (~ 1.5 million lines of code) from
Solaris/Motif to Linux/LessTif. I think this is a good sign that it will run
on CygWin/LessTif, too.

He lied ;-)

What do you mean by modified version of NEdit.

Well LessTif is a good alternative to real MOTIF, but it does
give problems with some applications.
