Tix.PanedWindow.panes() is nonfunctional for any but
single-letter pane names; the culprit is the following
line of code from Tix.PanedWindow.panes:

names =, 'panes')

Since the Tk "panes" command returns a string, it is
not iterated over properly.  The fix is:

names =, 'panes'))

Attached is error log from Python 2.4, Windows 2k.

Is there some reason to prefer .split over .splitlist ? It is very
likely that .split would still return a string if you had a single pane,
while .splitlist would return a tuple with an item on it.

Patch attached.
