    The problem occures from within fdesign. I think I may have
    found the problem though. When I setup a text object, I set
    the label to what I wanted, but didn't give it a name. Once I
    started giving it a name the problem went away. Still curious
    as to what was going on that made the system log me out. The
    system is HP's CDE and X11R6. As far as Xforms, I think .88 is
    still the latest available for HPUX. I've been checking now
    and then for 0.89.
