bug with private colormap and menus?

To subscribers of the xforms list from Kelvin Fong <kelvin@ecn.purdue.edu> :


I have written an XForms application which creates a relatively small
window with several pulldown menus. Because the window is small, the
menus, when pulled down, extend beyond the window's boundaries.
Everything works well with a shared colormap, but when the colormap
is either private or standard, the menu is cropped at the window's

I am using XForms version 0.81 and FVWM version 1.24r. I have
verified the same behavior under Linux kernel 1.2.13 and Solaris 2.3.
I also saw the same behavior under an early version of XForms 0.84
under Solaris 2.3.

Is this an XForms bug, or is this an aspect of X or FVWM, or perhaps
something else?

Thanks in advance,
Kelvin Fong
