The information missing from this issue is that tcl and tk can be compiled without and with thread support, and that the latter became default in 8.6, which is included with recent 3.x versions.  Hence the launch example, as posted on #33257, works for me in 3.7 but not 2.7.

I opened tkinter doc issue 33479, with this additional info, as a followup to msg183774 above.
