Follow-up Comment #1, bug #24069 (project gv):

Thank you for reporting this bug.

THe following text from Bernhard R. Link describes the reason:

--- behin citation ---
I think this is basically a problem with the naive implemenentation variant
of scroll lists in Xt: You create a widget for the full list and just show a
specific part of it depending on some generic scrolling widget. While this
variant [...] is the most easy to implement and has some elgance in design, it
has the serious problem that X window dimensions are 16 bit.
--- end citation ---

In other words: It is an overflow of the coordinates where the page numbers
are displayed. That is easy to describe, but very hard to fix: One would have
to reimplement the whole page number panel.

@everyone: Contributions of a new page panel code are very welcome. Until we
find a contributor, the fix has to be postponed. I am not happy with that
solution, ut I cannot code the code myself as a big knowledge of Xaw(3d) is

BTW: Up to 2184 pages are working for me, while 2185 pages and more are
causing problems.
