[Rd] slow tcl/tk

Dear list,

Building my QCAGUI package using Rcmdr 1.3.0, under R 2.6.0 (using Kubuntu Gutsy) I noticed the library starts visibly slower than... somewhere in the past.

I used the same version of Rcmdr under previous versions of R and the tcl/tk window used to open instantly. Under the current version though, the window take seconds to open: first it builds the base window, then the menus and finally the complete window.

The whole process takes about five seconds. I don't think it has anything to do with the Linux version, because I noticed the same behavior under the previous one as well.

Is there something changed about tcl/tk in R 2.6.0?

Thanks in advance,
