Sorry, it was not my intention to imply this was a bug. I just figured that people reading the bug list might be able to help me. I didn't figure this would be a problem for the general r list so I posted here. Developers of other programming environments prefer that these kind of problems be sent in as "bugs" even if they are not bugs in the correct usage of the word.

Yes. Otherwise I wouldn't have found the address in the first place ;-)

Could you advice a correct mailing list/newsgroup/link for my specific problem?

I don't have any experience in tcltk. Other than it doing its job up to now...

TIA Patrick
