Tkinter in thread hangs on windows but not on Linux

Hi,

I need to pop-up in a "modless" manner some windows from an existing
Tkinter loop. The following code works OK under Linux: the second window
opens, shows the information, and quits cleanly when destroyed. However,
under windows, I get the second window without the content (so I hang in
run I guess), and both the thread and the calling process hang.

Any clue ?

Thanks
Philippe
