in thread Tk::Gauge errors

Thank you so much zentara, from the testing I've done so far, the script changes work for me as well (although I did find out there was a typoed variable name in the process). I assume that I can extract the do_TopLevel sub and use it in places that are causing similar issues, replacing the variable names as needed? I'll likely continue stalking this to see if someone can figure out what's causing it. To which I'll ask: is it worth sending a bug report to the module page on CPAN even though it appears to have been left to gather dust by the author?

    As far as reusing that sub by replacing variable names, sure, Perl is free to modify.

    What I originally used it for, was I had problems with toplevels accumulating memory, even though they were being destroyed. This may be a another symptom of that.

    Tk::Gauge is old, and I doubt the author, has high priorities for it. A bug report can't hurt, but a better thing would be to offer to take over the module and fix it. :-)

    I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth.
