[XForms] corrupted text or big question box returns

I have been doing more testing and have found with my test program that
if I call fl_show_alert before fl_show_question, the corruption of the
question box goes away. I have noticed this fix also works for another
executable that is having trouble with the question box. If I display an
alert just before the question box, the problem goes away. I haven't
tried it with the other 2 images that are showing the same/similar
problem. There must be some XForms connection between the two.
My test program is very very small so I don't believe that there are
pointer or memory stack issues involved. 
Jens tried out my test program on a Linux box using gcc but was unable
to reproduce the problem I have been seeing. So I guess that is a clue
too. That it has something to so with Solaris or the compiler. The
compiler used is SUNspro instead of gcc. I do not know why this compiler
was picked in the beginning.
Because this problem is spread through several of our applications, I
really need to find a solution. Is there anyone who has debug ideas or
could help with this?
Any help would be appreciated.
