Currently Windows buildbots use old versions of Tcl/Tk. These versions contain bugs (for example see issue20560).

Versions mentioned in Tools/buildbot/external-common.bat:
On 2.7:
On 3.3:
On 3.4:

Some buildbots even use beta version of 8.6 (I needed write workaround in testsuite for behavior differences).

Recent Tcl/Tk versions:

Tcl/Tk 8.6.1 Sep 20, 2013 
Tcl/Tk 8.5.15 Sep 18, 2013 
Tcl/Tk 8.4.20 Jun 1, 2013

Perhaps it is time to update Tcl/Tk to recent versions?
