[R] TCL/Tk weirdness with R-1.2.x under Win98

With R1.2.1 and R1.2.0 (but not 1.1.x) under Win98 I have the following 
problem with the Tk demos
***IFF the Windows taskbar is set to "autohide" ***:

 >demo(tkdensity) [or any other Tk demo]
Tk interactive window opens.
Move mouse into Tk window and the window immediately minimizes onto the 
Windows taskbar .
Move mouse to taskbar and click on Tk icon -- window pops back up.
Move mouse into Tk window and window minimizes back onto taskbar.
Repeat at infinitum...

At this point, changing taskbar setting to not autohide generally allows me 
to close the Tk window, but (with demo(TkFAQ)  I got a string of 
"expression nested too deep..." error msgs.)

If the taskbar is not set to autohide at the start, everything seems OK.

FWIW -- tcl83.dll and tk83.dll are both 8.3.2 dated 8/8/00 of sizes 605 kb 
and 907 kb, respectively, and worked OK under R-1.x.  Graphics adapter is a 
Matrox G200/8 MB with current drivers.

Have I missed something?
