Subject: AMBER: Xleap menu bar problems

Hello Amber users
I am having trouble with Leap. The problem is that when I open up leap and
attempt to edit my molecule in windows (i.e.xleap), my menu bar tabs work
for only a few minutes and then they stop. That is, suddenly I cannot
"select" any option from my menu tabs. For example, when I write on the
command line of xleap:

"edit molecule"
Then the window opens with the molecule present. I then select tab "edit
selected atoms" it opens up the table and I begin to place in charges
etc.When I try to "save and quit" my options on the menu bar no longer
become "selected/highlighted" when I place my cursor over them. Suddenly,
none of the menu bar selections become active and I cannot shut the eleap
unit editor window except to close xleap completely.

I am running xleap on a Linux (redhat 7.0) system. I've had the same problem
with Linux redhat 9.0 operating system. I also run into the same problem
when I attempt to use X-windows with xleap from my PC.

Has anyone else run into this problem and knows how to correct it?

I am trying to create a library for a protonated residue not in Amber's lib.

Thanks, Steve
