On Windows 'send' is disabled because it caused
interpreter hangs. However, this leads to a test failure.

Ideally win-send should be fixed, but failing that the
test should have a non-Windows constraint applied.

==== safe-1.2 Safe Tk loading into an interpreter FAILED
==== Contents of test case:

catch {safe::interpDelete a}
safe::interpCreate a
safe::loadTk a
set l [lsort [interp hidden a]]
safe::interpDelete a
set l

---- Result was:
bell cd clipboard encoding exec exit fconfigure file
glob grab load menu open pw
d selection socket source tk_chooseColor
tk_chooseDirectory tk_getOpenFile tk_ge
tSaveFile tk_messageBox toplevel wm
---- Result should have been (exact matching):
bell cd clipboard encoding exec exit fconfigure file
glob grab load menu open pw
d selection send socket source tk_chooseColor
tk_chooseDirectory tk_getOpenFile
tk_getSaveFile tk_messageBox toplevel wm
==== safe-1.2 FAILED

    A failing test isn't exactly a disaster.

    Certainly not a disaster -- but when I run Tk's tests and I
    get some 20 different failures, how am I to tell which are
    important and which aren't?

    I happen to know that this one is pretty harmless, but
    that's still no reason not to resolve it (esp. given I can't
    see any action on fixing Windows 'send').

    Tk 8.5b1 is out.

    It's time to get [send]
    on Windows re-enabled and
    working properly, or it's
    time to officially revert it
    from the new feature list.

    I think this has been resolved
    in the sense that [send] on Windows
    has been pulled from the feature
    list for Tk 8.5.0.

    Leaving open for maintainer resolution,
    but dropping from release blocking
    priority.
