Put the tool's name in front of that X resource. Otherwise it's meant
for all! (BTW: the colon, i.e. ``:´´, belongs to the syntax, you
shouldn't neglect it.)

Kick Motif into its guts! And use something better than this dead born
MS Windows clone.
Motif has always been a pain in some distance from my own guts. The
good thing with Motif is that without a brain you can't feel it! I
really can't help you more ... they've created so many undocumented
things that, usually, come out of the guts ...
There is truss, trace, and such to follow the execution of a
programme's code. Use any of them to check what happens when GNU Emacs
starts, i.e. which non-Emacs Lisp files opened and which other
programmes are started. To do this more efficiently use -Q as sole
argument for Emacs.
