Worked fine the first time.

Failed a second time, but clicking once or maybe twice in an empty
area of the text was sufficient to deselect the text. Subsequently,
abort worked just fine.

I could accomodate you as to an enterprise edition. Instead, I used
my 64-bits w7 pro.

In view of the inherent imperfections of Perl/Tk, I do not consider
this glitch worth making a fuss about. But if you want to file a bug
report, be my guest, especially if it stops you from further nagging
this list about this dialogue.

And Phil: please keep the xetex list out of this.
