- Subject: Python crashes with threading and Tkinter
I've been having a problem with Python under Cygwin. Basically,
Python crashes if I try to start any threads in a program using the
Tkinter GUI package.
This issue has been encountered before, by Steve Ward in February
The test program that he posted crashes for me as well, under Cygwin
1.5.22-1. The same program runs flawlessly under Linux. The only
workaround I have found is this followup by Jim Brooks:
He recommended downgrading to Cygwin 1.5.18, as apparently the problem
was introduced by threading changes in Cygwin 1.5.19.
Does anyone know of another way to resolve this problem, so that
Python Tkinter programs can use multithreading? Thanks!
