I intend to "fix" this by patching the various configuration files  
when doing a framework install.

I've uploaded a new patch that partially fixes this. The problem is  
that AquaTk doesn't like keybindings that use the Alt key, which is  
used in the default binding for Windows->Zoom Height. I've worked  
around this by replacing all keybindings that use the Alt key by  
keybindings that use the Option key. That doesn't completely solve  
the Zoom issue though, <Option-2> is the default binding for  
inserting the TM sign and that side-effect still happens.

The new patch also fixes this. It's not perfect because I don't know  
how to avoid placing the bottom of the window below the panel.
