Does anyone know why this happens? I can't find any information pointing to 
this being deliberate.

I just upgraded to 2.5 on Windows (after making sure I can build extensions 
with the freeware VC++ Toolkit 2003) and some of my programs stopped 
operating. I saw in a French forum that someone else had the same problem, 
and what they did was to copy the relevant files from a 2.4.3 installation. 
I did the same, and it seems it works, with only a console message appearing 
as soon as a root window is created:

attempt to provide package Tix 8.1 failed: package Tix provided
