    I'm wondering if there is anything unusual about the installation on the user's machine. I've just tried this
    on a couple of machines, on 8.4a2, 8.3.2 and 8.2.1 varying loopCount as the requester suggested. In each
    case, it ran cleanly. (I used a four-liner:

    package require dde
    dde servername wbd
    tk appname wbd
    grid [button .b -text Quit -command exit]

    for the 'wbd' program, which the user did not supply.)
