RowColumn widget in my application, with several rows and columns of XmLabels.
When I update the text in the labels, the label's width does not get updated.

Answer: Make sure all the ancestor widget resize mechanisms are enabled:

   - on shells, set XmNallowShellResize
   - on row column, set XmNresizeWidth and XmNresizeHeight
   - on bulletin board and form, set XmNresizePolicy

Also, set XmNrecomputeSize on the label itself.  The shell resource is off by
default; the others should be on by default.
