Thanks, James! Most revealing and worth being made aware of. I've
downloaded the rebuilt Tcl and Tk RPMs from the last-named website,
had no problems with 'rpm -U ... ' on them, and will see if all is
now well. (If not, I'll roll up my sleeves, adopt your practice,
and rebuild from source).

Best wishes,
