Motif 1.2.2 lock up problems.

I'm not sure that this is specifically a Mosaic problem as I've seen
similar symptoms in other applications, but I'm hoping that
someone here might know how to fix it in Mosaic.

This problem occurs under Openwindows 3, SunOS4.1.3, and only with
Motif 1.2.2, not with Motif 1.1. X11R4 or X11R5 makes no difference.

The problem occurs if you open a menu item, e.g. File -> Open Local,
and quickly click on the "File" item in the menu bar before the
sub window has opened. (I think other menu related sequences cause
the lockup too but I can do this one repeatably). The result is that
Openwindows locks up. The mouse is still live but you can't select
anything, and the mouse pointer points NE instead of its usual NW.

Does anybody know how to fix this?
