Some time ago I started using lesstif on my Linux machine. I
that the progress bar looks like a slider. Is that intentional? On
the cool side, the flicker is much less noticable than with Athena,
which flickers horribly.
Also, the `Stop' button does not seem to do anything. I don't know if
i think this is a general problem.
Thirdly, it causes weird stuff in empty files. It might as well be a
font-lock bug, but slider/progress-gauge makes it very noticable. Try
opening a new .c file:
C-x C-f ~/a.c RET
Now start typing characters into it. What I notice is the bottom of
the screen flashing like mad because a gutter forms to create a
progress bar, and immediately disappears. The problem goes away once
you insert a newline character.
Either font-lock should be fixed so that it doesn't attempt to display
the spurious progress, or the progress bar should be adapted to handle
the case more gracefully.
In order to save my hands, I am cutting back on my mail. I also write
as succinctly as possible -- please don't be offended. If you send me
mail, you _will_ get a response, but please be patient, especially for
XEmacs-related mail. If you need an immediate response and it is not
apparent in your message, please say so. Thanks for your understanding.
