It sounds as though you are using Windows, and running R in MDI mode. 
tcltk doesn't work very well in this mode.  You really need to shrink 
the MDI frame and move the tcltk window outside of it, or run in SDI 
mode, where all windows are more or less equal.

You can select SDI mode by putting --sdi on the command line, or from 
the Edit|GUI preferences dialog.
