you should be able to use the debugger to figure out where it crashes,
either by running the program under the debugger, or via the core file
(ask your local expertise for details)

IIRC, something in the Tk C API changed somewhere around 8.1 or so.
If the debugger doesn't provide more clues, try recompiling, and look for
warnings in the compiler log.
