Hi All,

I ran into a weird problem with my new dual Quad-core Dell system running
RedHat Enterprise 5 Linux. VMD works ok except that I can't enter text in
textbox of the plugin windows. e.g. VolMap Tool selection. In fact this
happens to all of the extensions. Oddly enough, mouse clicks on pull-down
menu/radio selection are just fine and I can enter text in file browse (open
or save) windows from the plugins. Tk console and RMSD Tool work
occasionally. Everything that is lauched from VMD main program, e.g. Graphic
Representation, work normally.

Has anyone seen similar problems? I've tried both 64-bit and 32-bit VMD
1.8.6 and 1.8.5. They all behave the same. Any help is greatly appreciated!
