Thanks for discovering that bug.
The problem is that you are using a very old version of Tcl/Tk
(8.4 was released in March 2003). I've just learned that functions
names such as tk::Function in Tk 8.4 used to be tkFunction
in 8.3 and previous releases.
I've just installed Tk 8.3 and will fix that incompatibility
