Hi Krzysztof ,
i see, i can reproduce it... but the amount of 124 windows with 
devel_0_38 is large enough that i haven't encountered the problem before.
However, you are right with your original post... it seems that 
developers in the intersection of the topics "Windows", "PD" and 
"TCL/TK" really have vanished. I won't immerse myself in the latter.

best greetings,
