Hello, I have been using Mathematica successfully on Linux machines for many years now, but since version 5.2 I have a problem with the notebook interface that I cannot resolve and for which I have not found any solution on the www. This problem occurs on several machines which all run a *local* 5.2 Mathematica (*not* over the net) and have SuSE linux installed with version ranging from 9.2 to 10.0 and moreover which are using different windows managers. The problem is as follows: While editing a notebook I usually place the cursor in two ways, via mouse and also via the keyboard i.e. via the cursor-keys. Now, whenever the notebook reaches a visible size of say, only more than 2 or 3 lines of characters the movement of the cursor via the cursor keys gets very sluggish and even worse, it 'lags behind' in the sense that when I get my hands off the the cursor keys the cursor still creeps along the direction it has been sent into via the cursor key previously. While this 'feels' like in an xterm environment where the keyboard repeat rates have not been set properly, let me point out that this is not the case. On any of the machines where this happens the keyboard repeat rates for any other X-application are just fine. Any help on this issue would be most appreciated. Regards, Wolfram
