Description Joe Hughes 2004-02-25 08:11:26 UTC
When I use Cygwin/XWin as my X Server on a:
Windows XP Professional 
Version 2002 Service Pack 1
NVidia Quadro2 MXR/EX
Driver Version:

and run 
Version 2001a.04.00 Solaris 2 

on a:
Machine hardware:   sun4u
OS version:         5.7
Processor type:     sparc
Hardware:           SUNW,Ultra-4

I can not click on any of the menus: File, View, Actions, Options, Help.
The buttons on the toolbar work and the window contents itself is clickable as well.

The X Server is started with the following command:
start XWin -multiwindow -clipboard

From Alexander Gottwald in the cygwin-xfree list at cygwin.com:

Is NumLock activated?

By the way, you may want to join the cygwin-xfree list to watch the discussion,

That fixes the issue.
Yes I'll check out the cygwin-free list.
