I assume you are using a Windows-based machine. There is a conflict between RGtk and tcltk in that environment. It would be relatively easy to set a global option that RGtk and tcltk could check so that the other would not register itself as the event handler. And it is also not too hard to make them "compatible". The event loop mechanism in Windows used by tcltk and RGtk is a little bizarre and efforts to generalize it have not been overly successful.
