Advisory: RHBA-2011:1451-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A

Details

An updated openmotif package that fixes various bugs is now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The openmotif packages include the Motif shared libraries needed to run
applications which are dynamically linked against Motif, as well as MWM, the
Motif Window Manager.

This updated openmotif package includes fixes for the following bugs:

* Prior to this update, the size set in the GeometryManager() function based on
the XmFormConstraint "preferred_width" field was not updated when the label was
changed and still contained the previous label length. Consequently, if the
label text was modified while the window was smaller than the actual label
width, the resulting size was incorrectly computed and the label text truncated.
With this update the values are updated and the fault no longer occurs in the
scenario described. (BZ#583977)

* Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 was released with Open Motif 2.3.0, which
introduced a bug in the LabelGadget widget. Consequently, under certain
circumstances, LabelGadget could have drawn over a parent window with the
background color and, if using the Xft fonts, also over the text. With this
update, the text and background drawing the code has been corrected and the
problem no longer occurs. (BZ#584287)

* Prior to this update, the XmeTraitSet() function in ToolTips added Traits but
they were never removed, even when the objects were destroyed, which resulted in
memory leaks. With this update, the incorrect code has been fixed and memory
leaks no longer occur in the scenario described. (BZ#644824)

* Prior to this update, the foreground and background color for insensitive
labels (labels on items which are not currently sensitive or clickable) could
sometimes be identical when using Xft fonts. As a consequence, text in
insensitive labels using Xft fonts were invisible. With this update, the code
has been corrected and the problem no longer occurs. (BZ#684210)

* Double free errors occur when free() is called more than once with the same
memory address as an argument. Prior to this update, the helper widget
"im_widget" could be closed twice, leading to a double free error, when the
parent widget was closed. With this update, the code has been corrected and the
problem no longer occurs. (BZ#695650)

All users of openmotif are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
fixes these bugs.
