[issue5527] multiprocessing won't work with Tkinter (under Linux)

New submission from Aki <akineko at users.sourceforge.net>:
The attached test case, which uses multiprocessing module to run Tkinter
GUI process, runs flawlessly under Solaris but hung under Linux (CentOS5).
The test case is a trimmed version of much larger program but it still
exhibits the same problem.
I got a suggestion to use a function rather than a method of a class.
But it didn't make any difference.
I may have overlooked something but as far as I review my code, I
couldn't find anything that explains why the test case won't work (In
fact, it works under Solaris).
