When I said, "Everything works fine on RHEL 5.4...", that is with python version 2.4.3 and viewVC 1.1.18.

I'm currently having problems using viewVC which depends on both python and Tkinter.

I was hoping anyone could tell me why I'm getting the following set of messages from the "viewvc/bin/standalone.py -g -r $CVSROOT" command.  I'm using version 1.1.18 of viewVC, and 2.6.6 of python...Not sure how to find the version of Tkinter I'm using.  We are in the process of upgrading from RHEL 5.4 to RHEL 6.3.  Everything works just fine on RHEL 5.4 but not RHEL 6.3.  In addition to the following messages, the ViewVC standalone window comes up, but always says "starting server" and the open browser button is never activated.

Here are the messages:

Exception in thread Thread-1:
Traceback (most recent call last):

    self.tk.call(_flatten((self._w, cmd)) + self._options(cnf))
TclError: out of stack space (infinite loop?)

I first tried getting support from the viewVC community, but were told, "Looks like a problem in the Tcl/TK Python bindings."  They thought I might want to raise my issue with the community that maintains those bindings and that maybe someone there might quickly recognize the problem and give me (or the viewVC community) immediate feedback on a solution.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,
