Tkinter in Win9x is pretty much unusable. It supposedly works OK
in the WinNT, Win2000, WinXP series. The problem is exactly what
you report: anything goes wrong, and it does something wierd to the
that causes programs to not end, and also causes problems on exit.
I've never heard of the foobar.pyw suffix not working to suppress
the DOS window, however. That's what it's supposed to do.
