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

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

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