You should indeed make sure that Tcl finds its encoding files. Try
executing "encoding names" for a tkapp object, to verify you get a
long list of encodings. If you only get the system encoding and UTF-8,
it didn't work - try the FixTk.py script from the Python CVS in this

I'm also surprised that Tk supposedly works with MS IME; I know for
fact that it doesn't work with XIM (on X11). You may want to verify
that Tk really supports MS IME on your system, by installing a plain
Tk 8.3 on your system.
