Oh, I am afraid I don't know anything about this :(
Seems like it is something tk doesn't do by default though.
A quick web search showed up this result:


So it seems like this is something that must be compiled into tcl / tk .

>From reading this thread the good news seem to be that latest tk releases
seem to already do this, so if you can get a recent tcl/tk working with
your python install there may be hope for you ;)
