The executable is being run from an NFS volume, and in fact, almost
everything it references (config files in $HOME, shared libraries) resides
on an NFS server.  However, our other environment, solaris, has the same
setup, mounting almost everything from NFS, and it works fine.  

I noticed some very interesting behavior the other day.  As I said in my
previous message, AS does register mouseclicks when capslock is on, but
all clicks are registered as the middle mouse button.  After a little
experimentation, I found that by clicking any mouse button, the window
list menu would of course appear, and I could drag it around the
screen.  However, as it dragged, it was clear that the (x,y) coordinates
of the mouse were being inverted to (y,x).  i.e. if i dragged the mouse
up, the menu went to the side.  

Could this be an endian-ness issue?  I suppose you probably check for
endian-ness during configure, but it's the only thing i can think of that
might do this.
