problem with ActiveState install

I've installed the ActiveState binary distribution for Solaris in my
home directory, but I'm having problems with Tk.

I think I did everything right -- I used gtar rather than Solaris tar,
and the install process indicated it was successful.  I added the
python directory to ~/.bashrc.

Python works fine from the command line.

But if I try to execute anything that uses Tkinter (including Idle),
the console window goes blank and then nothing else happens.  I have to
use control+z to break out.

Does anyone have any idea what the problem might be, and how to fix it?

Thanks in advance,
