I have searched the web, and can not find any clue about it.
Please give me some clue about where is the possible root cause of this
Thanks a lot.

import Tkinter
import tkMessageBox

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/xshuang/workspace/CPP/pydemo/src/test.py", line 4, in <module>
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/lib-tk/tkMessageBox.py", line 83, in
    return _show(title, message, INFO, OK, **options)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/lib-tk/tkMessageBox.py", line 72, in _show
    res = Message(**options).show()
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/lib-tk/tkCommonDialog.py", line 48, in show
    s = w.tk.call(self.command, *w._options(self.options))
_tkinter.TclError: bad attribute "-type": must be -alpha, -topmost, -zoomed,
or -fullscreen

#how to reproduce
1. In Fedora 12, no problem appears with default python. 
But, after using the following command to update python, yum reinstall
tcl.i686 / tk.i686 / tkinter / tklib, the above problem appears.

2. In Windows, no problem appears.
