Great, if you are at it, please translate the whole messages then
we also have a Croation version of the installer!

As Vladimir already noted, that is a combination of our perl and Tk.

As we are planning to switch to Strawberry Perl and new Tk rather soon,
I guess that problem will go away.

You could help already now if you are experimental friendly:
- get http://www.logic.at/people/preining/texlive/tlperl.zip
- rename ROOT/2009/tlpkg/tlperl to ROOT/2009/tlpkg/tlperl.original
- unzip tlperl.zip in ROOT/tlpkg/ (it will create the tlperl dir)
- try running tlmgr again and see if it is fixed.

tlperl.zip contains Strawberry perl and Tk modules.

Best wishes
