You should make sure that you have the most recent version of
the X Front End for Sun SPARC ( You can identify this 
version by looking at the X Environment Information on the Help 
menu. It should include a build date in December 1994.

If you need any further help with this I suggest that you
contact Wolfram Research Technical Support (support-europe at

I hope this helps.
