This looks like a memory corruption problem in the LessTif XmText
widget (similar problems have been reported before).

I'm not a big expert in LessTif internals, but at least I want to make
sure this is really the cause.  There's two ways for narrowing that
problem down:

* Set the environment variable MALLOC_CHECK_ to 2 and repeat the DDD run;
  while this will not help fixing the error, any memory corruption problems
  will be detected sooner, facilitating localization.

* You may wish to upgrade to LessTif 0.92 or later, available from
  `www.lesstif.org'; please tell me whether the problem persists.

Best wishes,
