[Pythonmac-SIG] What's this message mean?

When I run a Tkinter app from the command line (in an xterm or from the
Terminal app) the main window comes up okay, but it's not at the top of the
window stack.  When I click its title, the window does not raise and this
message is displayed in the terminal window:

    SetFrontProcess failed,-606

I have to pause the app (Ctl-Z) and kill it.

otool tells me this about my _tkinter.so file:

    % otool -L ~/local/lib/python2.3/lib-dynload/_tkinter.so 
            /Library/Frameworks/Tcl.framework/Versions/8.4/Tcl (compatibility version 8.4.0, current version 8.4.0)
            /Library/Frameworks/Tk.framework/Versions/8.4/Tk (compatibility version 8.4.0, current version 8.4.0)
            /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, current version 63.0.0)

Any suggestions?
