The CVS entries from the last build I did on the Sun are from May 21,

The window manager I am using on the Sun is the dtwm, part of the
Solaris install. I do not know the version number off hand, but it is
the one packaged with Solaris 7, if that helps.

Below is the output from xprops on the monitor ....

                window state: Normal
                icon window: 0x3404224
WM_CLASS(STRING) = "x0", "GRASS 5.0.0pre1"
                bitmap id # to use for icon: 0x6800002
                program specified size: 450 by 400
WM_ICON_NAME(STRING) = "GRASS 5.0.0pre1 - Monitor: x0"
WM_NAME(STRING) = "GRASS 5.0.0pre1 - Monitor: x0"

If there is any other info. I can provide, let me know. Thanks in
advance for your help.
