What distribution are you running.  This usually (haven't found  a
counterexample yet) happens with SuSE Linux distrbutions.  It is
due to an overbroad X resource setting in the system Xresources 
file.  You can find information on how to resolve the problem at
Wolfram Research's Technical Support website.

http://support.wolfram.com/Systems/Unix/Linux/DeleteNext.html

Should you happen to be running a non-SuSE distribution, the 
instructions at the WRI website should be sufficiently generalized
to track down the source of the offending resources.
