New submission from Terry J. Reedy <tjreedy at udel.edu>:

3.2.3rc2 and 3.3.0a2, freshly downloaded and installed, Win7, 64 bit
Start Menue/Pythonxx/Module Docs
Brings up tkinter pydoc box.
[open browser] brings up *empty* localhost:7464 window.
Search 'tkinter' and double-click tkinter entry or select and [go to selected] opens empty localhost:7464/tkinter.html window.

This worked sometime last year on earlier 3.2, maybe on xp box.

I thought there might be an issue already, but I searched for 'pydoc' and 'modole docs' and found nothing.
