For a while we were able to get around the problem by using a hacked version of
xmanager.pro suggested to us by RSI support.  However, this solution broke with
IDL/v5.3.  We ended up having to bite the bullet and rewrite the software to
avoid using /MODAL.  Pity, especially since the changes involved coordination
between programmers on two sides of the Atlantic.
