I have not been working on a Solaris desktop for some time now and it is
unlikely that this will start again. I forwarded your request to maintainers,
maybe there is someone who is willing to give it a go.

Apart from that your report sounds more like a problem with SGIs libfam
or better the GAMIN rewrite of it. The version 0.1.10 is still the latest
and the total quality of GAMIN was not the best, so fixing this may require
some debugging. You may also try to go back to the obsoleted SGI implementation
if that works for you.

Best regards
