HI,

You are right this seem to be a modal issue. Reproducing the problem with
modal disable fix the freezing issue.
To trigger this i need to go in the check for modification dialog->remote
changes->(you need to have some changes) if you double click on one of the
changes it will popup two windows. On my side the two popup are
freezing(Rabbitvcs issue ..) but with modal disable i can xkill the
rabbitvcs windows and resume normal operation.

This morning i had another phenomena like this one with other perl/tk
applications but i was able to recover because not all windows was
affected.. if it happen again i will try disabling the modal windows.

Great hints!!
Since it is a modal issue to you need me to open a ticket?
Carl
