GDSPLOT crashes during Plotter Setup.

In a rare case, a client running GDSPLOT on Linux and Solaris experienced a problem when clicking on the Setup Plotter Parameters of xgdsplot.
After selecting this option, xgdsplot was not responsive and the user had to kill the process.
When selecting the plotter setup from the xgdsplot menu, the GUI tries to open the xpltcfg menu which allows the user to set the page size, plotter type etc..
We found out that this error happens when the default file xpltcfg.Xdefaults (located in the user's home/.artwork directory) is corrupted.


Go to your home directory and remove the .artwork directory. It will get re-created next time you start xgdsplot.
