No. 3.3 amd 4.0

Funny you should ask. Actually app has both, but the
problem is worse on the forms without canvases. At first I thought the
problem didnt't exist on the ones with canvases, but it does, it
just happens less often..
Further experimentation shows
A is 486 with RHL 5.2 and X11 3.3
B is p-III with RHL 7.0 and X11 4.0
Display on A:
Executable on A, X server on A, fvwm on A - All OK
Display on B:
Executable on A, X server on B, fvwm on A - all forms have problems
Executable on B, X server on B, fvwm on A - all forms have problems
Executable on B, X server on B, fvwm2 on B - all OK

Hmm.. worth a look.
