The help is Windows-only, isn't it? I use Windows (at work and 
eventually at home) and Linux (at home). Maybe this is off-topic
(it's more a bug of tcl/tk then of the tcltk R library), but this 
tk_getOpenFile opens a nice window in Windows, but a mutilated
window in Linux, that does not show any file information except
filename. That's why I wanted to know if there was a way to
improve the function call - I think there isn't.
