Subject: Tk events break if built with x11proto-core 7.0.13
[This is a duplicate bug report from #38745, because it was filed by mistake against perl-tk which is apparently not the same as Tk] In x11proto-core 7.0.13, a new event (``GenericEvent'') was added at the end of the list, after ``MappingNotify''. Since the Tk toolkit's event management was poorly designed, older versions of the Tk toolkit and current version of Perl-Tk fail at runtime with the message "no event type or button # or keysym" when compiled against (or even run under ?) an X11 server with the new event list. This issue has been reported as bug 2010422 of the Tk toolkit and a patch was provided and applied (at least partially) to the core 8.4, core 8.5 and current branches. This is only a short-term solution (patching the event list in generic/tk.h) and the Tk team is thinking of a long-term solution for future releases. In Perl-Tk the issue was not yet corrected AFAIK (I tried version 804.028 under Mac OS X v. 10.5.4 with XQuartz 2.3.0). It is enough to patch the file pTk/mTk/generic/tk.h to fix it. Please find a patch that does it along with this report.
