I have just upgraded to Solaris 8 (or is that 2.8?) and Self 4.0 still 
works perfectly. And now I can run 4.1.5 as well. The reason I was 
afraid things might break is that little things like text selection 
didn't work in Self 4.0 on Solaris 6 as well as they did on older 
versions of the OS, so I thought I might have even more problems on an 
even newer version. I haven't done extensive testing, but that doesn't 
seem to be the case.
