Hmm, seems you have serious window manager trouble. Can you switch to another
WM to check if it is CDE-related? Does it happen with *all* apps (esp. a simple
Frame test), or just with the ones you mentioned? Please dump also coordinates
in wnd.c createWndow() / wndSetFrameBounds(), to see if this might be caused by
layout. The whole layout/validation scheme is currently reworked, but the old
one shouldn't produce your bugs, too.
