Indeed, looking into the code I see:
  if (!win32()) {
    require Tk::Pane;
    $subframe = $mainwindow->Scrolled("Frame", -scrollbars => "oe");
  } else {
    $subframe = $mainwindow->Frame;

hmmmm... I remember now that Taco reported crashed when using this
on Windows.

FOr now I activate it again since we have a new perl, let us hope
that it is going fine.

Everyone, please test as far as possible on Windows computers!

Best wishes
