I finally tracked this error to a conflict with the TCL/TK library version
installed by Ruby having previously installed Python 2.3.2. Python 2.3.2 is
dependent on a TCL/TK version that is one release older than that required
Uninstalling Ruby and Python 2.3.2 and reinstalling Python 2.3.2 seems to
have done the trick.
I will have to run some controlled experiments to see if Ruby can run with
the same TCL/TK version as Python 2.3.2.
Thanks again for those of you who responded with suggestions.
