Wow - the latest and greatest of these beasts - cool!

As a first shot, I'd recommend to check the libraries on which gv
depends. Here:

buckel@beavis:~>ldd `which gv`
         -lm.0 => /usr/lib/
         -lc.12 => /usr/lib/
         -lX11.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/
         -lICE.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/
         -lSM.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/
         -lXt.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/
         -lXext.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/
         -lXmu.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/
         -lXaw3d.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/
         -lgnumalloc.0 => /usr/lib/

The important thing is Xaw3d which might be missing on your
machine. The package system should have taken care of this, though.

IMHO the server is rock solid, I haven't found any flaws so far...

    Bob> noticed this behavior?

Nope, works like it is supposed to. Maybe a reinstall of gv and Xaw3d
will do the trick? It's kind of Windoze-wimp style but you never
know... ;)
