I've long observed a problem with tk and mice that has often frozen my
machines. It always happens on a double/triple click which for whatever
reason is not recieved by the app, at which point all the tk apps, or all apps
including X, cease to take mouse events at all, usually requiring me to
restart X, or even reboot.

Changes of kernel, versions, even machines reduce the problem's frequency, but
it's still there.
