Dear VTK users,

    I am trying to run VTK 4.0 on my PC Linux Red Hat 7.2 platform with 
Python 2.2.1
    and tcl/tk 8.3.3. For the most part Python/VTK works, but I am 
running into the following
    core dumps in the Wrapping/Python directory:

cloud% python vtkGetDataRoot.py
cloud% python vtkLoadPythonTkWidgets.py
cloud% python vtkpython.py
cloud% python vtkpythontk.py
cloud% python vtkRenderWidget.py
Segmentation fault
cloud% python vtkTkImageViewerWidget.py
Segmentation fault
cloud% python vtkTkImageWindowWidget.py
Segmentation fault
cloud% python vtkTkRenderWidget.py
Segmentation fault

    Has anyone else encountered these core dumps and how do I fix this 
so that I can use
    VTK and Python?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

Best regards,
