Hmm. well, this is interesting...

I nuked everything, and did a complete rebuild today (as you might hve
guessed :-)

and... now it seems to work normally.

So you have one confirmed "it works with solaris 8 (x86)" now, with a
regular mouse.

however, its a smidge worrying why it went nuts before.  
My computer blew up, and I reinstalled it. Which means there may be a
specific patch level that causes problems.

And related to that... there is a 'bug' with certain versions of Xsun,
which means that gimp wont work correctly with it, yet other programs will.
Just FYI: Xsun with XFree extensions is known to have a problem
with certain video cards, which makes some gtk programs that use pixmaps,
not display properly.
This used to be a problem with mozilla.
Oddly enough, mozilla works fine now on this box. But gimp.1.3.7 exhibits

this problem.

a precompiled binary of gimp1.2.1, linked agaist
        libgtk-1.2.so.0 =>       /opt/sfw/lib/libgtk-1.2.so.0
        libgdk-1.2.so.0 =>       /opt/sfw/lib/libgdk-1.2.so.0
        libgmodule-1.2.so.0 =>   /opt/sfw/lib/libgmodule-1.2.so.0
        libglib-1.2.so.0 =>      /opt/sfw/lib/libglib-1.2.so.0
does not have this problem either.
