it is unlikely toxy would work with 0.38, I am afraid, without
updating the way of addressing Tk objects (or waiting for Miller
to release a version which restores the original way).

weird the trace ends here...  The fragile part of potential
widget-to-text transformation (which is fired on a Tk failure)
comes just next, after [widget]s start sending Tk-widget drawing

Have you tried building toxy with uncommented WIDGET_DEBUG,
