[Bug 5347] Re: sketch does not start

It looks like this is a problem with Tkinter.py.  The self.tk
instruction on line 1569 is sending 8 arguments (screenName, baseName,
className, interactive, wantobjects, useTk, sync, and use) when tk
expects only 4 arguments max.

Not sure what the fix is, but I bet this isn't a sketch issue alone.

I installed the python2.3-tk and checked the Tkinter.py file.  the
self.tk instruction is different:

python2.4-tk:
self.tk = _tkinter.create(screenName, baseName, className, interactive, wantobjects, useTk, sync, use)

python2.3-tk:
self.tk = _tkinter.create(screenName, baseName, className)

I wonder if there is some sort of mismatch in the backend. It looks like
2.4 added features, but perhaps the backend .so module doesn't match up.
Just a guess.
