Wouldn't it be better to check for the actual problem, that is use subprocess to start a small Tcl script that creates a window and check if that crashes?

That way the code for disabling the test doesn't have to try to guess whether or not Tk will crash in the current environment, and tests won't get skipped when the Tk folks get their act together and don't crash when the window manager isn't available.
