I have experienced the problem that graphics/xfig when run
under KDE as window manager hangs as soon as one presses the first
action button (circle, line, whatever, doesn't matter).
I thought the problem was that the relayout (done for highlighting the button)
by the x11/Xaw3d library hangs in a loop. This is due to the fact that KDE (or,
more exactly, KDE's window manager) passes large values for `maximal allowed size'
as input to the relayout routine of Xaw3d, causing overflows in the 16bit
values used to calculate sizes there.
I submitted pkg/32445 with a patch for Xaw3d but have seen no reaction, so I am
curious, if I am the only one, having troubles with xfig.
So: has anybody else seen xfig hang under KDE?
Does the patch from pkg/32445 solve the problem?
