#2841 Namespace error on "::1:1.0" for XVNC DISPLAY variable

obsolete: 8.5.5

I ran into an old namespace bug, which, according to the following email thread: https://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/message.php?msg_name=268895540912061058l60228248u483940a5c2737cca@mail.gmail.com and https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2912473&group_id=12997&atid=112997, should be solved from 8.4. Was the patch taken out again? It works fine when I work from the local ":0.0" display.

I run TCL/TK 8.5.5 from the Suse SLES 11 SP1 enterprise distro, so I can't upgrade to the latest TCL version unpunished...

Please let me know if you need extra information. Did I choose the right category?

    This is already fixed in Tk 8.5.9, the current release.
