Can't start IDLE

On winNT sp3 I get the following message when I do a "python idle.py"
from the command line:

C:\Program Files\Python\Tools\idle>python idle.py
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "idle.py", line 3, in ?
    PyShell.main()
  File "PyShell.py", line 612, in main
    fixwordbreaks(root)
  File "EditorWindow.py", line 606, in fixwordbreaks
    tk.call('tcl_wordBreakAfter', 'a b', 0) # make sure word.tcl is
loaded
TclError: invalid command name "tcl_wordBreakAfter"

I looked around deja.com and found one other person with the same
problem, but no response so I'm asking here.

thanks,

Nick
