Hey Brad.

For linux I have the following suggestions as I have encountered a similar problem.

a) install Static Version and not Dynamic.

b) if you can get the libgtksourceview1.0-0 library then do so.
You can do it from the command line if your distro support apt-get by typing

sudo apt-get install libgtksourceview1.0-0

if not try to find it in a package manager.

I run Debian 6 and the libgtksourceview1.0-0 is not supported so I had to link libgtksourceview2.0-0 to libgtksourceview1.0-0 the DO Editor crashes still so the only thing left for me is to try the Static Version of STATA 11 as Tech Support suggested.

if non of the above helps, you are in the same boat as me. Talk to tech support.

We recently purchased a copy of Stata-MP 11 for Solaris and we are
having some issues with the X11 forwarding's speed. I have fixed a few
of the issues as described below, but now I seem to encounter strange
occurences when forwarding X onto Windows.

At first, the problem was with forwarding itself. On Linux, this was
solved with "ssh -XYC" options, and on Windows we had to switch away
from Xming/PuTTY to Cygwin/X, which is not a very elegant solution, so
that we could use these options (PuTTY has no -Y equivalent, the key in
the problem). Just wanted to share that since nobody else has mentioned
"-Y" to fix X11 issues, and it took me awhile to discover that worked.

After that, it responded quickly but the Do-File Editor and Data Editor
both crashed every time they were started. As found on this mailing
list, "Edit->Preferences->Data Editor->Disable visual gradients
(improves performance)" fixed solely the Data Editor. Currently I have
not found a solution to fix the Do-File Editor's crashes.

Are there any other X11 performance tips that might help solve this?
