Suggested checking /usr/lib/.sunview, /usr/lib/.rootmenu, and
$HOME/.defaults. Also suggested verifying kernel paramters such
as max users, no. of windows, kbd, mse, etc.
Reports same problem and notes that user root still works
vincens%FRULM63.BITNET@CUNYVM.CUNY.EDU (Pierre VINCENS
Reports same problem.
nobody@Kodak.COM (Steve Bochinski
Suggests verifying that selection_svc is running.
Reported same problem, which was fixed by replacing
firstname.lastname@example.org (David LeVine)
Says user may have overwritten his .sunview file.
email@example.com (Daryl Crandall)
Recommends examining selection_svc.
creagh@Corp.Sun.COM (Creagh Yates)
Suggests renaming $HOME/.sunview and re-running using default.
Reports same problem and says only a reboot will fix it. Also
suggested checking /usr/lib/libsuntool.s*.
Had similar problem, and suggests rebooting.

Same thing happened here when somebody installed some X things
that had the same names as the SunView "shelltool" and "cmdtool",
and the X things were early in the path.
email@example.com (Jeff Shaw)
Reported some unusual behavior due to lables specified with the
-Wl option that contained tilde characters (~). He says these
worked under 4.0.3 but don't work under 4.1.
Well, thanks everyone!
John R. Ruckstuhl, Jr., wins the "grand" prize. Sure enough, the user
had /usr/openwin/bin/xview first thing in his path. Moving it to the
end cleared up the problem immediately. (But not until I'd tried all
of the other possible solutions.)
