Thanks for the hint, with the new SDL.dll the issue is gone, TuxPaint works perfectly.

Hi István, and all
Seems a bug in SDL, as there is already a new version of SDL than the
one used in TP 0.9.21, you could try upgrading it to see if it helps.
Locate a file called libSDL.dll in the Tux Paint installation directory,
rename it to libSDL.dll.back
Donwload the latest version of libsdl from
http://www.libsdl.org/release/SDL-1.2.15-win32.zip unzip and put in
Then start Tux Paint and hope for the best.
If it still has this problem, you could watch
http://sourceforge.net/p/tuxpaint/bugs/160/ to see if some of the
suggestions made there works for your problem.
