Fixed for the next release

What was the "fix" havill is referring to? A patch in the RH release,
a RH build problem that was solved, or a tix upgrade?

AFAIK this has never been a bug in tix, as the xpm images
are covered in the test suite.

I have a new minor release ready to go but not yet announced.
Would you like to try it out and see if there is this problem?
It's a bugfix release with no major changes
to the configure/make.

Thanks for the followup.

As far as I can tell it was probably fixed by a version
(perhaps to tix-2.2b?).
