[Rd] tcltk freezing using MS Windows for R-2.14+

thanks so much for this clue.

I have found that if I reduced the time in seconds from 0.1 to 0.01 to 
0.001 to 0.0001 I only had problems with freezing on the 0.0001 time.

I tested on Win7(64 bit) on an Intel core i7 870 at 2.93GHz (16GB ram)(8 
and a WinXP (32bit) Pentium 4 3.01GHz (2GB ram) using 
R-2.15.2(2012-10-26) on both.

I had previously found that the tkgrab.set command seemed to be the one 
actually freezing
so I placed the sleep command just before that with the same result as 
it being just after the tktoplevel command.

I am now going to try it in my packages affylmGUI and limmaGUI, probably 
with a sleep time of 0.1 to be on the safe side,

many thanks,

Keith Satterley
