Tkinter Crash under PythonWin

I'm not sure about Windows, but in the case of unix and Mac, the IDE is 
not suitable for Tkinter scripts (due to colliding event loops or 
similar problems) and you have to use the command-line version instead. 
If that's your problem, it should be pretty clearly stated in the 
release notes or some similar documentation.
