Sorry - why do you think these versions are out there?  To give you
the opportunity to *report* errors, of course.  Otherwise, DDD 3.3 may
now have a serious bug nobody knew about so far...

Hmm...  The particular error was caused by a memory corruption in the
LessTif XmText widget (see traceback below).  It may be that DDD
itself has caused this corruption, but with MALLOC_CHECK_=2, the
chances are quite small.  Do you see any particular message on the
console (such as `freed memory that was already freed' or likewise?)

Also, you may simply try upgrading to LessTif 0.92 or later and see
whether the problem persists; please tell me the results.

Best wishes,
