I don't know if this is a related problem but I also had some very weird
behavior for a widget program when I used underscore as the name in the
title bar of the widget. (ie: XMANAGER, "my_widget_prog",.....).
Replacing the "_" by a "-" fixed the problem.
However, it seems that I also abuse of neurotoxic substances since the
CW_animate in the /lib uses: XMANAGER, "CW_ANIMATE Demo",... and works
perfectly fine. (???)
Please let me know if you can get a reasonable explanation for this.
