   np> Fix the "fixed" font.

Norbert, I don't see "fixed" being hardwired in the Perl code, though I
certainly could have missed it.  Anyway, I'd expect the normal font for
Tk to be used, not just forcing "fixed"?

In any case, hopefully it can be changed with some confusing X user
preference or another.

   nl> The boxes are non-writable regardless of write permissions.

Nikola, it seems that this must be some peculiarity of the Tk you have
vs. what tlmgr is expecting/doing/programming for.  There's probably no
practical way for Norbert to debug why it's happening on BSD when it
doesn't happen anywhere else.  Any chance you can dig into it?
