Pointer click does not select submenus in X....Mathematica and Matlab


Hello,

I have a rather frustrating problem of not being able to select subdirectories with the file selector of Mathematica using the pointer which is supposed to possible so that i am obliged to type of the entire path for every file i am looking for. I am on SlacKLinuX doing kernel 2.6. Actually the same problem crops up when i Matlab as well but with Matlab its not so severe - meaning i can use the "ok" button to view subdirectories but with Mathematica it more severe so i am thinking its X problem?

So to explain a bit futher the "file selector" is the same as the menu for locating files. If you do not know mathematica its here http://www.wolfram.com/. I am resonably certain that its something with X in relation to Mathematica because only these two programs exhibit this behaviour.

Thanks in advance.

xmeson.
