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

The "Tk Widget Tour" behaves normally regardless of "autohide" setting, so 
I don't think it's intrinsic to wish.  However, this is such a minor 
problem (note that I called it "weirdness" not "bug"), that it's probably 
not worth  spending time on.  I've used autohide mainly to avoid accidently 
launching some bloated app. I'm always pleased (and frequently surprised) 
when things work on Windows at all.  Both R and Gimp are amazing examples 
of successful ports.  BTW -- does anyone have anything good/bad to say 
about Windows 2000 Pro (for my next Win/Linux dual-boot machine)?
Best regards,
Peter Denisevich
