[R-SIG-Mac] General (very minor) tcltk handling question

If I start a R session with R.app, or R running in the Terminal or  
xterm, the idle CPU coverage is about 1.0% resp. 0.0%. Fine.
If I load 'library(tcltk)' the idle CPU coverage increases by ca.  
0.4% to 0.7%. Even if I detach tcltk the increasing is still there  
caused by a started thread 'TclHandler' which waits for commands. OK,  
this increasing is negligible, but nevertheless is there a way to  
kill that thread if I explicitly detach tcltk?

many thanks in advance,
