Wow, well if you are right, then TCL/TK is a showstopper for us, and we will have to consider an alternative to tkinter. 

Frankly, I am aghast that any active software would be limited to fixed width characters.

We moved our languages over to multiwidth (utf-8) back in 2003: most of the changes were restricted to a handful of string functions (strcut, strlen, etc.). Compiling TCL to use 4 byte chars isn’t really a solution either.

What confuses me is that there are several people on SO who are saying ‘works for me’.
