Subject: edd 2.2, Solaris 2.5 and Sun patch 103210-09
From: Andrew Johnson <anj@ast.cam.ac.uk>
To: EPICS tech-talk <tech-talk@aps.anl.gov>

We've just been having fun (!) with edd killing the Openwindows Xserver
on some of our machines, right after it prints "Searching for
fonts...".  We've managed to track it down to a change which is made if
you install Sun's 103210-09 patch.  On backing out that patch the
problem goes away.  The patch itself also affects the fonts which
CapFast's xschedit (non-motif SunOS version) uses for its menus, so it's
not necessarily a problem with edd/dm.

Solaris 2.5.1 doesn't display this fault, but it uses different patches
so the equivalent change may not have been released yet.

Hope this message stops anyone else from seeing the problem.
