Description of Problem: ical experiences segmentation fault during startup

Version-Release number of selected component: 2.2-21

How Reproducible: everytime.

Steps to Reproduce: type 'ical' at command line

Actual Results: Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Expected Results: no error message.

Additional Information:

This started occuring about a week after doing an up2date on my system,
including an update of the kernel from 2.4.2-2 to 2.4.9-12

I removed my .calendar file, removed the ical rpm, reinstalled,
and still experience the same fatal results.

I might try compiling from source...

Ical's home is currently Not Found:

I tried compiling ical-2.2.tar.gz, but configure complains of an incorrectly
installed Tcl/Tk (the --with's were requested by configure):
