Hi there !

I'm new to this mailing list and listening to it quite a while, I think
xwpe is a good tool and I'd like to see it getting better (and help you
if I can)  I'm having exactly the same problem with the cut and paste
using IRIX 6.5.. Beside that, my xwpe
has problems, if my compiler complains too much. When I have loads of
errors, the first time it's o.k., but if I try to recompile it, and there
are still errors in it, it just crashes 
(Xwpe: unexpected signal 10, exiting ...) 
This is reproducable, but happens only if the window of xwpe is bigger
than a certain size (circa 126 columns per line)
Moreover, my xwpe cannot handle lines longer than 123 characters
correctly. Does anyone have the same problem ?
There are some other things which do not work correctly (debugger wouldn't
start) But I save this for another mail...

Thanks and bye,
