yeah, the problem is that they are waiting with the release of tcl/tk8.5
too long ;)

joke aside, i assume the problem is that the font tk8.4 uses here
(bitstream vera sans?) is not so optimal for not-antialised use (or
tk8.4 doesnt render it not so nice)

it looks ugly, but i assume it is normal...


ps. this is one of the reasons why i use tcl/tk8.5 from cvs for a long
time already...
