Thanks to John Leadenham who may have had a good point regarding the data
structures.  However...

I decided to have a look at the readme files on the SunPlayground web site
for memtool but could find no indication as to whether there were 32-bit or
64-bit versions.   I also noticed there was now a 3.9.4beta2 version of
memtool so I downloaded that, uninstalled 3.9.3 and installed 3.9.4beta2.
The memtool GUI now works.

Conclusions:  It may have been a bug, or, it may have been a corrupt
executable, or, it may have been 32 v 64 bit - I guess I will never know!!!

	Just a guess -- are you using 32-bit memtool with 64-bit Solaris?
	This will matter because memtool has to access kernel data
	which differ between 32-bit and 64-bit modes. Pmap should work.
