i'm not sure that's specific to 0.38. however i would always recommend building toxy to your pd version, rather than use binaries( the makefile in externals/miXed/ will build in GCC on windows, or linux..or osx...) since a minor tweak in any of the g_ files could break everything...(mathieu has seemed interested in pure-Tk GUI objects so i would hope or suspect the process is integrated one day..)

so i noticed if you open drop*.pd first, pd freezes, on this:

image create bitmap ::toxy::img::empty -data {}
proc ::toxy::doreply {target vname vndx op} {
 pd [concat $target _rp $::toxy::reply \;]
 unset ::toxy::reply
pdtk_canvas_new .x9f5850 505 131 +471+279 0
wm title .x9f5850 {dropfile.pd  - C:/samples/_p/pd}
set menu_windowlist {{dropfile.pd .x9f5850} }

however, if you open another toxy-using patch first, or, if you add -lib "widget;zexy" it should work on launch....
