I also get a bus error from "tlmgr --gui" on OS X 10.5.4 using perl5 from
macports, but have not had time to investigate.   I did, however, see some
failed tests with p5-tk, and the crash report also points to Tk, so when
I do get time I want to run the Perl::Tk tests again.   It may be some
small comfort to know that your pain is shared by others.
