>From the GUT (French users group) mailing list. After an upgrade of Mandriva
from 2008 to 2009.1, tlmgr gui no longer works. The windows opens but crashes
within a few seconds, issuing the following message.

no event type or button # or keysym at
thread-multi/Tk/Widget.pm line 1105, <LANG> line 90.
 at /TeXLive/2008/texmf/scripts/texlive/tlmgrgui/tlmgrgui.pl line 212
Compilation failed in require at /TeXLive/2008/bin/x86_64-linux/tlmgr line 2196,
line 90.

The PO tried to update tlmgr with update-tlmgr-latest but it didn't change
anything (which is not very surprising, since it looks like it is either a bug
in his perl-tk or an version clash).

Can anyone confirm/infirm? Perl-tk gurus, wdyt?
