This is curious. This (mis) behaviour is `well known' and has caused problems in
several versions of MIDAS. However on my system (PC-Linux, RedHat-6.0) the
problem has been fixed in 98NOVpl2.1 (and 98NOVpl2.2 for that matter). So it
would appear that in your particular case it is a configuration problem. You
might want to compare the following with what you get on your system...

$ ldd /midas/98NOVpl2.1/gui/exec/long.exe
        /lib/libNoVersion.so.1 => /lib/libNoVersion.so.1 (0x40014000)
        libmidas.so.7.1 => /midas/98NOV/lib/libmidas.so.7.1 (0x40016000)
        libXext.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXext.so.6 (0x4015c000)
        libXt.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXt.so.6 (0x40169000)
        libX11.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.so.6 (0x401b5000)
        libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0x40259000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x40275000)
        libSM.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libSM.so.6 (0x40363000)
        libICE.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libICE.so.6 (0x4036c000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)

Unfortunately it seems to have REAPPEARED as of 99NOVpl2.0 (even with the ESO
supplied libXm.so.1.0.2 correctly installed -- which I have checked with ldd,

$ ldd /midas/99NOV/gui/exec/long.exe 
        libmidas.so.8.1 => /midas/99NOV/lib/libmidas.so.8.1 (0x40014000)
        libXm.so.1 => /midas/99NOV/lib/libXm.so.1 (0x4015c000)
        libXext.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXext.so.6 (0x4026c000)
        libXt.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXt.so.6 (0x40279000)
        libX11.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.so.6 (0x402c5000)
        libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0x40369000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x40385000)
        libSM.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libSM.so.6 (0x40473000)
        libICE.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libICE.so.6 (0x4047c000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)

The offending error message produced by the create/gui long command is

Warning: Unknown modifier name:   E

I Hope at least some of this is useful.
