Tk is irksome

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

So for some reason (and I haven't done enough research to even describe the problem adequately) Tk in Python 2.2.2 will hang (the entire Python process) when you go futzing around with the members of whatever you get back from Tkinter.Tk(). It only seems to have this problem on Windows 2000 and Windows XP. No one has mentioned issues on other platforms.

Anyhow, so I was going to do a version release this last weekend (that would be January 5th), except now I have to go puzzle through why Tk is being so twitchy.
