It's the difference between the MSVC compile and link flags for the
Python console application and the Tk console application (wish) that
I think need double checking.  The building of the tk.dll isn't the
issue: it's whether the Python.exe is being built with the correct
flags - wish.exe exits cleanly and Python.exe hangs, and I'm wondering
if the console app defines and library link flags are the cause.

I know you're not-a-gui-guy, but can you help with python.exe compile
and link flags? Has anyone build Tkinter with Cygwin, and if so, does
the same problem show up there?
