The code for the Command widget does this as well. But Command belongs
to the same code base as Label, so it can rely upon specific behaviour
The same can't be said for xlwradio.c, and I'm fairly sure that the
Athena documentation doesn't specify the behaviour to this level of
detail (and even if it did, I wouldn't rely upon the XFree86 folks to

The default translations for the Toggle widget (which is xlwradio's
<Btn1Down>,<Btn1Up>: toggle() notify()";
The "toggle" action is bound to Toggle(), which does:
class->toggle_class.Unset(w, event, NULL, 0);
ToggleSet(w, event, params, num_params);
and ToggleSet() does:
class->toggle_class.Set(w, event, NULL, 0);
The Set and Unset methods are initialised to the "set" and "unset"
action procedures for the Command class.
I suggest checking whether the command.set field is actually being set
correctly. If it is, the problem is in the redraw code. If it isn't,
the problem is in the event handling.
