  Thanks for testing! I don't have a laptop here, just a Mac Mini,
so some of these things I haven't been able to check myself yet.

Can you validate whether it works if you edit those in your copy?

Thanks, I got the same report from some others.
I may try a different rev of Tcl/Tk, rather than 8.6.9.
There is an release of Tk, which may have been a bug fix.
I will try that first. I have also built 8.6.10 and may try that next.

Sure. Once we get past the fundamental issues I would be happy to look at
the rlwrap change and similar improvements.

I'll try to get another update posted over the weekend after I hear
back from more testers.
