Thanks to the following for the answer.

Using dtpad -standAlone did the trick.
dtpad uses the ToolTalk interfaces a lot to allow editing among multiple CDE
apps. Try running "dtpad -standAlone <filename>" to turn off this
Hope this helps...

are you su'ing or rlogging into root?
I've seen this problem before in that scenario:
Here's what I found as a workaround:
Solaris8 has enhanced restrictions for ttsession, as a result after an su or
rlogin to another user and then bringing up dtpad OR DTMAIL, you must do
1) ttsession -c ; dtpad
2) dtpad -standAlone
I'm having a problem running the dtpad editor as root on a Solaris 8
a non-root user I can run the program OK but I get this error as root:
ttdt_open failed: TT_ERR_PROCID The process id passed is not valid.
Other desktop apps (dtcalc, dtterm, etc.) run OK when I run them as root.
