Just yesterday I sent out a request for information concerning the
"Waiting for tools to terminate..." message I would get on my screen
almost every day when exitting from SunView. I also mentioned that
this dumped a core dump. Several people told me I could do a "file
core" to see what program dumped the core file. Although this was
very helpful, the real solution to my problem was described by

I did have FrameMaker running and I do have a license reserved in my
name. I originally thought it had something to do with upgrading to
SunOS 4.1 but I think I got the reserved license about the same time.

a bad rep or anything.
Thanks to all who responded. See, now isn't this better than debugging
