Comment (by mojca):

 Maybe `xasy`? (If you make sure that you run it from MacPorts prefix
 rather than from external source that uses the system python.) Or any
 other tk program.

 I don't see any reason why it would not work, but I admit that I'm a bit
 puzzled when I compare your patch with the one from Peter. (That is: I
 wonder why your shorter patch works correctly if Peter had problems with
 other bits of code.)

 It would also be super useful to report this upstream.

 Just that Perl/Tk needs some love. I opened https://github.com/eserte
 /perl-tk/issues/24 a while ago, even if I don't expect any answer. Thus I
 would be really surprised if it worked for Peter.
