    I'v downlaoded version 1.2a2 of SpecTCL from sourceforge, and I'm trying to
    get it to start up (as a precursor to SpecPerl, but I probably should not
    mention that in this group :-))

    I've trued it on 2 different systems. One is HP-UX 10.20 with TCL 8.2 and
    the Oteher is FreeBSD 4.3, also with Tcl 8.2.

    On the HP machine I get a window asking me what ouptup format I wan't and
    when I click OK, I get the following error message:

    Tk_FreeCursor called before Tk_GetCursor

    On the FreeBSD machine, I get the popup, and clicking Ok, makes it go away,
    but nothing else ever happens.
