[Tkinter-discuss] Tkinter vs Tk strangness

I've tested Python2.7 and it exhibits the same problems so it must not 
ship with a new enough version of Tcl either.

What are my options? If I'm not mistaken I can't just swap the version of 
Tcl used by Python, but building Python from source (on windows) seems 
like a headache. Is it possible to rebuild just Tkinter with a different 
version of Tcl somehow?

I don't use windows regularly, so I forgot about that :)
Anyway, I tried it here on a windows2k system where Python2.6.3 (Tk8.5.2)
and Python2.5.4 (Tk8.4.12) are installed. The same effect you described
occurs with Python2.6 but not with Python2.5 . Of course I can only
guess, but I believe that it's probably a problem with early versions of
Tk8.5 that has already been fixed in the latest ActiveTcl.
