infinite loop in iwidgets Panedwindow-2.5

  1. Change icomment to:

    The cause of the problem is that

    uplevel #0 destroy $widget

    is (properly) expecting that the namespace of level #0 is the global namespace so that "destroy" resolves to the Tk command "::destroy".

    What is happening instead is that Itk has done some shenanigans under the covers to force the namespace of that frame to be ::iwidgets::Panedwindow so that some resolutions in the config script happen as they need to.

    This is clearly an incorrect solution, and another one has to be found, probably involving the pushing and popping of a callframe.

  2. Change login to "dgp"
  3. Change mimetype to "text/x-fossil-plain"
  4. Change priority to "Immediate"
  5. Change resolution to "Open"
