...hmm:  I guess the first question is where did you get the tcltk 
8.4.9, or did you build it from the 8.4 cvs?  I ask this because I've 
had no problems with tot (8.5) or tot (8.4) cvs, but then I haven't 
been building apps :-)  So at least we know it isn't a fatal conflict 
between 0.38-4 and 8.4.9...
