I used NVIZ with tcl 8.4 for a couple of years... There were issues only
on Debian (tcl8.4 there uses threads, this was fixed in NVIZ by Cedric
if I recall correctly). But the recent changes have introduced real problems
which will be hopefully sorted out soon.

The key issue currently is that the error messages are hidden. This makes
it almost impossible to track down the problems.
