:Yes we had a lot of trouble with the Mathematica Front End on the SGI.
:We made some progress by working closely with Victoria Bush from WRI.
:Wolfram has to do a lot more to have a X- front end that is similiar to
:the Mac Front End.

I've run into a different bug in the sgi/x front end.  Various
control characters accidentally typed ( ^x say ) do not crash,
or show up on the screen display - but they do get sent
to the kernal resulting in the most bizarre errors.  I spent
a whole day debugging a simple notebook...finally a save-as-text
showed these unintentional control codes burried in the input..sigh.
