in reply to Tk chatterbox client patches

Thanks for taking the time to read through some of that code. I hadn't looked at it in quite a while. I went ahead an applied (most) of your changes to Perl/Tk Chatterbox Client. The big problem in is still there (it belongs to someone else). While your fix may do the job, some sort of more robust XML parser should probably be used.

    I'm just glad I was finally able to get monkchat working again, I missed using it. The code is pretty easy to follow, and uses a style that's very close to my preferences, so I enjoy working on it.

    I made a few additional changes after I posted the patches: I've made the horizontal scrollbars for both widgets non-optional. This will prevent the "oscillating scrollbar" phenomenon that occurs when the widgets' contents cause the x scrollbar to be packed and forgotten in an infinite loop. I've also added mousewheel bindings to both widgets. I'll post those patches, along with a few others in the near future.

    I agree that a formal XML parser is needed. I was thinking of using XML::Simple. I'll do some work on that and post patches for testing.
