Hal Stern of Sun Microsystems mentioned:

1) use the command "trace sunview" to pin point where sunview blew up
   and check the file which blew up while executing sunview. I replaced
   /usr/lib/, rebooted the system and it is back in

The systems administrator of this particular system had the root's .cshrc
automatic loading sunview; since sunview never could execute so root got
knock off everytime. Again, many thanks to all of you.
