  I am running 1.4.5-1 (glibc.rpm).  I know I cheated with the RPM, but it
saved me some time getting everything setup.  You mentioned patches have been
released-where can I get these patches to go to 1.4.5-3?  Or is the glibc
version a different beast?  The only problem I am having-is when I expand the
Netscape or StarOffice windows (resizing in general)-the window manager
repaints rather slowly.  Not really a problem for me, but it makes it harder to
demonstrate afterstep in a microsloth environment and be taken seriously.

Thanks for the help
