well TclTk 8.4 - I tried to reproduce it, but so far no success. But as far as 
I can remember nothing except launching tcltkgrass helped. 
I will remember it next time it happens and give it a try.

well, ok it makes sense from the "list of commands" point of view but

Otherwise I have to get used to it ... :-), Cheers Martin
