My SWAG is that you've updated perl recently, but not updated the perl::Tk

2 versions of perl? Is this ok?
Does anyone have an idea?
Problem solved: It was not the perl upgrade, it is the X server which is to blame. I recently upgraded the Linux installation on my workstation and there seems to be a problem with xfree there.

This is of course a problem with Linux's ssh client - i am posting this only in case someone else encounters this problem.
