I just had problems creating .xpm-files with xmakemol (versions 5.10 through 5.13). The created .xpm-files are zero length and xmakemol gives the error 'Cannot open <filename> for write'.
The problem occured both on SuSE 9.0 and 9.1.
I traced the problem to a new version of libXpm.so which was installed by the automatic update process. See eg.

For the moment I fixed this by installing the previous version of libXpm.so (XFree86-libs- for SuSE 9.0 and XFree86-libs- for SuSE 9.1.) and disabling the automatic update. Could you investigate to see if the problem lies in xmakemol or in the security 'fix'?
