Mandrake 8.0 and Mathematica 4.01

I just installed the new version of Mandrake, 8.0, and Mathematica 
4.01's GUI has quit working.

More precisely, the key bindings are screwed up.  When I hit the 
"Delete" key there's a forward space!  As well, you can't drag over text.

This makes the user interface almost unusable.  Does anybody have any 
idea why the program would suddenly quit working?  Other programs 
continue to work.  Could this be the Motif interface?
