However, I don't think that we should be modifying Init.sh to work
around problems with the MacOSX Tcl/Tk implementation.

Also, I'm not sure that the above really fixes the problem. AFAICT,
the whole point of the "2> @stdout" is so that stderr goes to the same
place as stdout, i.e. into the stream which is returned from the open
command, and *not* wish's stdout/stderr. But the nature of the problem
suggests that wish's stdout/stderr is getting involved.

If a command generates an error, do you get the error message in the
output window, or in the xterm? It should be the former.
