I just got a clean portupgrade -a, so I hope my problem is not a
version issue, because I don't have any newer versions to install.  I
get the following when I try to run meld:


[steve at dystant /usr/home/steve]$ meld
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/meld", line 93, in <module>
