Tkinter related tests are failed on 4 of 6 Windows 3.4 buildbots.

ERROR: setUpModule (test.test_tcl)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\\3.4.kloth-win64\build\lib\test\", line 685, in setUpModule
    tcl = Tcl()
  File "C:\\3.4.kloth-win64\build\lib\tkinter\", line 1955, in Tcl
    return Tk(screenName, baseName, className, useTk)
  File "C:\\3.4.kloth-win64\build\lib\tkinter\", line 1856, in __init__ = _tkinter.create(screenName, baseName, className, interactive, wantobjects, useTk, sync, use)
_tkinter.TclError: Can't find a usable init.tcl in the following directories: 
    C:/ C:/ C:/ C:/ C:/ C:/ C:/

This probably means that Tcl wasn't installed properly.


Is this a test suite defect, or there is an issue with using Tkinter on Windows? In latter case this is a release blocker.
