I have heard one report from a Mavericks user for an application that I 
distribute, and it's scary. One window takes many seconds to open, and 
another is unusable because the user cannot type into it.

My app uses Tcl/Tk 8.5.11 because later versions crash (due to a bug 
that I reported to this list, but I've not yet tried to write the pure 
tcl version -- this Mavericks probably strongly suggest I'd better get 
on it).
