Description and steps to reproduce:
I noticed that when I place a component on the circuit and then I undo the action the program crashes immediately with this error: Segmentation fault (core dumped).
It might be an architecture issue since a friend of mine with archi686 doesn't have this problem.

Additional info:
xcircuit 3.7.26-2
tk 8.5.13-1
tcl 8.5.13-1
libxpm 3.5.10-1
zlib 1.2.7-1
kernel 3.6.9-1-ARCH
Architecture x86-64
This task depends upon

Confirmed, fails for me
Here is the devel version of xcircuit, maybe that one works

This problem appears on i686 as well, just checked on my netbook. Downgrading tcl and tk to 8.5.13 (and recompiling xcircuit) fix the problem.

Downgrading tcl and tk fixes the problem for me as well. Didn't need to recompile xcircuit though. (tcl and tk 8.5.12)

I've found a solution to this bug, which is actually a tk 8.6.0 bug. The patch from applied to tk solves the problem. I'm going to report the tk bug.
