FYI with Motif Version 2.1.30 editres causes a SIGSEGV in emacs

  GNU Emacs 21.1.2 (i586-pc-linux-gnu, Motif Version 2.1.30) of
  2001-11-06 on hera

  $ gdb emacs
  Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
  0x404ef1a5 in chunk_free () from /lib/libc.so.6
  (gdb) xbacktrace

xbacktrace produces nothing!

With the X toolkit all works fine.

  GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (i686-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
