When I click on Insert regexp -> Make regexp menu I got an error 
message telling me  " invalid command name "-font" "

The details button on the software leads to this error:

invalid command name "-font"
    while executing
	    "-font $::font_regexp  -selectbackground lightblue  -selectborderwidth 0  -width 1 -height 4  -borderwidth 1  -yscrollcommand [list $..."
	        (procedure "regexp::make-regexp" line 20)
		    invoked from within
		     invoked from within
	         ".#menubar.#menubar#insert invoke active"
        	    ("uplevel" body line 1)
	            invoked from within		
		"uplevel #0 [list $w invoke active]"
		    (procedure "tk::MenuInvoke" line 50)
		     invoked from within
		"tk::MenuInvoke .#menubar.#menubar#insert 1"
		    (command bound to event)

Not sure if this is a bug or a miss-use from my side, maybe some Depends/Recommends are missing?
