I assume you are using a Windows-based machine.
There is a conflict between RGtk and tcltk in that environment.
It would be relatively easy to set a global
option that RGtk and tcltk could check so that
the other would not register itself as  the event handler.
And it is also not too hard to make them "compatible".
The event loop mechanism in Windows used by
tcltk and RGtk is a little bizarre and efforts
to generalize it have not been overly successful.
