I run ELF version 0.86 on Linux (Slackware release, 2.0.30) and have no
problems with fselector boxes. Do the demo programs which utilise fselectors
work properly ? If not I suspect that you have linked to the wrong version of
the xforms library (.a) or the wrong runtime library (.so). Make sure those
links are right :)

Hope this helps,
