I am running version 2.1.2 of MacPorts on OS X 10.6.8:

sudo port version
Version: 2.1.2
uname -a
Darwin Victors-MacBook-Pro.local 10.8.0 Darwin Kernel Version 10.8.0: Tue Jun  7 16:33:36 PDT 2011; root:xnu-1504.15.3~1/RELEASE_I386 i386

I have the following versions of python27, py27-tkinter and tk installed:

sudo port installed python27 py27-tkinter tk
The following ports are currently installed:
  py27-tkinter @2.7.3_0 (active)
  python27 @2.7.3_1+universal (active)
  tk @8.5.13_0+quartz (active)

Poking around online suggests that compiling tk from source with --enable-threads might resolve the issue, but is there a better way?

Thank you for your help.

Current maintainer of python27 and py27-tkinter is jmroot; current maintainer of tk is mcalhoun

The tcl +threads variant (for compiling with --enable-threads) has been the default for over 6 years. (tk currently has no +threads variant, and will implicitly build with or without threads based on what tcl was built with.) Assuming this issue can still be reproduced, would something like require_active_variants tcl threads in Tkinter ports be necessary?
