Description
Kestrel Fcs_M on Solaris

All items of Choice can not be displayed when the size of Choice is 
larger than the screen size because many items in it.

On the other hand, Choice on Windows can be displayed well 
even if many items are in it because a scroll bar is provided.

To reproduce,

1)Compile and run the attached program on Solaris.

2)Click the Choice menu.

3)Choice can not be displayed completely.

Similar to 4179758?  Are there similar problems for Lists and menus?

Commit to fix in Merlin.  There is interest in having this fixed earlier - 
either in Kestrel-Solaris, or as an escalation by CTE.  Either way, we 
should get it into Merlin.  (Also it is an SQE yellow bug).

My understanding is that native motif choice widgets use a scrollbar in 
Motif2.1 but not in Motif1.2.  Both these versions of motif are supported 
in Kestrel-Solaris and in Merlin.  Our inclination is to have the AWT widget 
use the native widget, since that is what developers generally expect from 
AWT widgets.  We are currently investigating supporting this in Merlin.

The current Motif widget XmOptionMenu doesn't allow scrolling.
New Choice native layer is implemented using XmComboBox from Motif 2.1. The
new code is used only with Motif 2.1, with Motif 1.2 the old behavior is
conserved. The Motif 2.1 is used by default with Solaris 7 and 8 and Linux.

Choice item on Solaris goes off screen or does
not implement a slider for large numbers of items
