1.142.1. RHBA-2010:0132: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as errata RHBA-2010:0132
Updated openmotif packages that resolve several issues are now available.
The openmotif packages include the Motif shared libraries needed to run applications which are dynamically linked against Motif, as well as mwm, the Motif Window Manager.
These updated openmotif packages provide fixes for the following bugs:
* redisplaying a Label or LabelGadget widget could have caused a BadDrawable X error and resulted in an invisible label. This update resolves the issue with unspecified pixmaps so that labels do not become invisible and BadDrawable errors are not incurred. (BZ#569906)
* selecting an item in a MultiList widget resulted in that item becoming invisible due to the same color being used for both foreground and background colors. The same problem occurred with "insensitive" labels, buttons, icons and list entries. With this update, foreground and background colors in widgets have been differentiated so that they do not become invisible during operation. (BZ#569907)
* attempting to use a keyboard accelerator such as Ctrl+S failed to achieve the intended effect when the Caps Lock, Scroll Lock or NumLock keys were activated. This was caused by missing support for the X11R6 modifiers scheme. Support for the modifiers scheme has been implemented in this update so that keyboard accelerators can be used as expected even when modifiers such as Caps Lock, Scroll Lock or NumLock have been activated. (BZ#569908)
All users of openmotif are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.
