Huge tde update yesterday, python stuff now fails

Greetings guru's;

This did work before the 51 tde updates yesterday:

gene@GO704:~/linuxcnc$ python
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 278, in <module>
  File "", line 222, in main
    root = Tk()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/lib-tk/", line 1712, in __init__ = _tkinter.create(screenName, baseName, className, 
interactive, wantobjects, useTk, sync, use)
_tkinter.TclError: unknown color name "BACKGROUND"

This has been a  dog & pony show I have been to before, several times, 
and each time IIRC the fix was different.  Historically, if by playing 
the 10,000 monkeys with typewriters scene long enough that I manage to 
fix 'BACKGROUND' the FOREGROUND will be the next excuse used to exit a 
formerly working script.

Does anyone have a clue what to fix this time?

Thanks everybody.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
