My deepest sympathies. :-)

You don't mention which version of XForms you have installed or how
`xwatch' was built.

It is possible that `xwatch' was built to use shared libraries (spawn
of Satan) and there's a mismatch between the libraries upon which it
was built and the libraries which are installed under the environments
mentioned. There have been some API changes since 0.81 and it may be
that you're being bit by one (though, I must confess, I'd expect
something more drastic). The demos are probably built with static
libraries, so they aren't affected by the change in shared libraries.

Anyway, that'd be my first guess as to the problem.
