Thanks for the new release; tkinter has provided not only a splendid
user interface toolkit, but ammo with which to fight the hordes of
Tcl fans :-)

About the "memory leak" problem: before it used to be constantly
growing in memory. Now it grows for a while, then decreases in size.
The trend is still upward.

The size also grows slower if I check the socket every 50ms instead
of every 20. Then again, I'm not sure if this is due to after or
to the other tcl code executed.
