No, just Tk.

The following simple snippet of code demonstrates the problem.  I see the
problem under Windows XP, but not under Windows 2000.  On both platforms I'm
using ruby 1.8.2 (2004-11-06) from the Windows one-click installer.

require 'tk'
root = TkRoot.new
button = TkButton.new(root)
button.command lambda {Tk.exit}
button.text 'Exit'
button.pack
Tk.mainloop
