I wasn't ignoring it. I answered you. I must have posted somewhere else 
too (sig-int). Somewhere along the line someone suggested that I post 
here. It seemed quite logical, since the problem is in Tkinter (PIL too, 
I suppose), so I did.

I find posts to these lists a little odd anyway. People are posting from 
outside the tkinter-discuss at python.org. Responding to them rather than 
the list tends to confuse matters (I'm referring to the fact their posts 
may not show tkinter-discuss at python.org, so one must supply it). 
Secondly, if one doesn't use plain text, then the post may not get to 
the list. This is not to mention that not using Reply All may seems not 
to prefer picking up the mail-list address. There are just a lot of 
bumps in the road.
