Thank you for your report.

I created a ticket for upstream. Meanwhile you can test my solution, which
should hit rawhide tomorrow. The testing will be valuable, because my gitk isn't
crashing, it's only print out the same message.

I'll add that  tkcvs also doesn't work - and excpet for the lost 'MouseWheel'
name - strace shows quite weird access patterns - when tcl/tk application
actually tries to access nonexistant paths first prior the real installed paths

This is upstream ticket: http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=2010422&group_id=12997&atid=112997

It looks like the way of using GenericEvents was changed in the latest xorg. All versions of tk will be affected. I'm testing the patches from upstream and try to update asap.

Fixed by upstream in the latest version.
