Actually, I got an indication from Mr. Aidan Kehoe that he would fix
this. And many thanks for that!
I’m not keeping to my stated schedule, though, am I ;-) . I have spent a
good bit of this evening working on selection fixes, though. It seems subtly
broken in so many ways--for example, if XEmacs is linked against Motif,
it’ll only ever offer TARGETS, TIMESTAMP, STRING or COMPOUND_TEXT to pass
out, despite paragraphs and paragraphs of Lisp occupied with doing that

man XLib is a start.
But normally, programming directly again X(t) isn't worth the
... there are many nice toolkits out there (Qt, GTK+, vxwindows and
But, unfortunately, their implementations are not that finished on XEmacs,
so there’s a need to learn the X library to finish them.
But unless you are used to hacking XEmacs, XEmacs itself might be a
stumbling block. Even getting that beast to build is a challenge :)
Hmm, I’ve found it one of the more sane OSS projects I’ve built.
