Problem with X windows Notebooks

To any who can help;

Clicking the SaveAs menu button in the X windows notebook frontend
did not apparently do anything. After several clicks (separated by long waits)
on the button the cursor changed to a black dot with white horzontal bar.
The front end was hung then hung up and non-responsive.

Also new sub-windows (ex. help...), browers, etc. are not displayed. I suspect that
these subprocess forks are not being sent to the correct display 'channel'.

Mathematica Version HP9000 Series 700 2.2 is the version running on node (an HP 700 running HPUX 9.x).

I telnet to mist.our, 
logon and use the c shell,
set the enviroment variable DISPLAY to,
and then invoke Mathematica.

Any help will be appreciated,
