When testing an RC for Tk 8.6b2 on a Centos
Linux system on x86_64, I get an "Application Error"
popup window with the message:

Error: bad window path name ".t.f.x"

bad window path name ".t.f.x"
bad window path name ".t.f.x"
while executing
"winfo rooty .t.f.x"
("after" script)

Examining the test suite, this is
apparently coming from test winWm-9.2.

    When this happens, the test also fails:

    ---- Result was:
    timeout
    ---- Result should have been (exact matching):
    ok
    ==== winWm-9.2 FAILED

    Testing winWm.test alone doesn't reproduce.

    A complete `make test` along with a machine
    busy doing other work seems to be needed to
    trigger the failure.

     
  • Since that test is in a win* file, and is the only one in the file to lack a "-constraints win", a typo is likely.

    But even, what makes it nonportable, to deserve being there ?

    On Snow Leopard, the same test SEGFAULTS.
