ptkdb save config problem - "Devel::ptkdb::promptString" is all I see

twotone has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

My Setup: Windows XP Home, ActivePerl 5.8.7, Abyss Web Server X1 (v, mysql 4.1, php 5.0.4

Installed modules related to this problem:
ptkdb 1.1087
Tk 804
Data::Dumper 2.121_04

The menu option "File>Save Config" in the ptkdb GUI perl debugger is supposed to save the current configuration of break points, watched variables, etc. When I choose that menu option a little window with the title "Save Config?" pops up. The only thing in the window is the text Devel::ptkdb::promptString and nothing else - no save dialog, nothing. When I invoke a script from a DOS window (i.e. C:\mydirectory>perl -d:ptkdb here is what happens:

When I choose the "File>Save Config" menu command I see this message:

Tk::Error: unknown option "text" at c:/Perl/site/lib/Tk/ line + 205. at c:/Perl/site/lib/Devel/ line 2165 Tk callback for .toplevel Tk callback for .toplevel.button (menu invoke)

I wrote a very simple script to test the problem. The problem still occurs running this code from the DOS prompt:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use CGI qw(:standard); use CGI::Carp qw(warningsToBrowser fatalsToBrowser); use strict; print header; print start_html(""); print "Hello World!\n"; print end_html; exit;

Let me know if you can help me and if you need any other details about my code / setup.
