Maybe someone has met the following problem (root v4.00.08 / slc3,

When using the G4UI Xaw based session :
### Run 0 start.
Start Run processing.

---> Begin of event: 0

--------- Ranecu engine status ---------
 Initial seed (index) = 0
 Current couple of seeds = 9876, 54321
---> End of event: 0
Run terminated.
Run Summary
  Number of events processed : 1
  User=20s Real=25s Sys=3.2s

When using the G4UI Xm based session :

It seems that it happens only when from inside of the Geant4 application I
make "new TApplication("Application", ((int *)0), ((char **)0));" and then
I create and draw a TCanvas.
Is it possible that the X11 handling by both the ROOT and G4UI is a
problem nowadays?

It is possibly worth of noting that ... in case of Xaw based G4UI it dies
AFTER the event is fully processed (the canvas has been created and
refreshed all the time as expected), while in case of Xm based G4UI it
dies shortly after the canvas is created and drawn (in the beginning of
the event processing).

Any ideas?
Thanks in advance,
Best regards,
