By recompiling my Python and VTK with the shared version of tcl/tk 8.3.3
the core dumps stopped! So if anyone runs into the core dumps when
Wrapping/vtkRenderWidget.py, Wrapping/vtkRenderWidget.py, etc., then
Python and VTK with the shared version of tcl/tk.
I feel that VTK should work with either the static or shared version
In any case, thank you Prabhu and Charl for your help.
