When I collated a document with blank values in the X
and Y coordinates of a LABEL widget on a form using
GRID geometry. Then when I collate the form, Guido
reports no errors (and doesn't create a file) while
the Command window displays many a Tk error.

Doing the same thing with the PLACE geometry manager,
I can collate a project, but the perl script created
fails with the following error:

wrong # args: should be "place configure pathName
option value ?option value ...
?" at C:/Perl/site/lib/Tk/Widget.pm line 1034.
at at1.pl line 12

Is there some kind of validation logic to be added
into this collate feature? Something to report the
errors before Collating is attempted?
