I recall such a bug during development -- do you perhaps have an
"old" CVS checkout (say, from about two weeks back?)  If you have
a CVS version of the PTK, I would recommend updating the checkout
to yesterday's release tag:

  cvs update -r ZopePTK-0_9_2-src

If you installed the PTK from a tarball, I would recommend upgrading
as well:


If the bug persists after you upgrade, please add it as an issue
in the PTK tracker:
