Just a part of the gcg9 doc (sorry for the copyright, and the length
of the lines):
SeqLab, the Successor to WPI
Individuals using MacX (version 1.5 tested, others unknown) may have problems
launching SeqLab without first starting the xterm or DECterm program. We have seen
several instances of this during the field test for Version 9. If SeqLab is launched from
one of these terminal programs, then you should not see a problem.
The MacX local window manager with Macintosh style window decorations is not
recommended. This window manager ignores window stacking order imposed by
Motif and can cause some serious difficulties in using SeqLab. Use the Motif style
window manger or use a "rooted" session with the Motif window manager (mwm)
running on the server.
If this helps you choosing your X server ;-), I think I'd send you the one
we use by mail.
