I've seen exactly the same behavior change between XForms 0.88 and 0.89
in an XForms application I wrote for telescope control. The fselector
goodie does not respond to a few first double clicks. After that it
starts to work normally. I've noticed this on Solaris 2.5.1, Solaris 2.8
and Linux RH6.2/XFree86 ver. 3.3.6. This is surely correlated with
XForms version change, as the very same source linked with 0.88 works
fine. I was unable, however, to reproduce this problem in a simple test
program. Also the fselector DEMO program works fine. That's why I did
not report this to the list. Now as I've read Marien's post, I can
guess it might be some real program with XForms and not my app.
For the time being, I had to go back to 0.88 which I regret deeply as I
would like very much to be able to use fl_image routines for displaying
