DECwindows window border display?

» close window

The Question is:

I'm running DECwindows 1.2-5 under VMS 7.2-1 on a DS-10.  When I pause the
window and then return to it, the window borders are not repainted with the
specified color; they seem to be transparent (screen background color) altho
they are outlined.  Also, t
he pause screen has lost all boxes (evidently, they are the same color as
the screen background color).  I have not found any patchs that seem to
cover this problem.
Everything still works, just differently.  If I make a window active, the
colors return as they originally were.

The Answer is :

  If you have not found any patches, this is probaly a rare or new
  problem, or something that is specific to your configuration or
  Please first apply the available graphics ECO kit:
  and (for other reasons) please apply the available SYS kit:
  There is presently no ECO kit available DECwindows V1.2-5.
  Please contact the customer support center if the problem persists.
  Information on the installed ECO kit(s) and the name of the particular
  graphics controller installed in the AlphaServer DS10 system will
  likely be needed.
