Look at PathnameToWref() in util.c. Remove the line
    static char class[256] = "::_";
and change the lines
    winPtr = (TkWindow *) Tk_NameToWindow(tclinterp, pathname, mainwin);
    strcpy(class + 3, winPtr->classUid);
    return NewWidgetRef(pathname, GvHV(gv_fetchpv(class, FALSE, SVt_PVHV)));
    return NewWidgetRef(pathname, gv_stashpv(winPtr->classUid, FALSE));

        Uh...  this fix works...  but still core dumps is the
        menutest window is killed after a menu selection was made.

        If the "Exit" was used,  it's ok... no core dumps.
