Subject: three different labltk behaviors
Ocaml community,
For fun I wrote a version of Life for ocaml +labltk.

Here are the 3 ways I've tried to run it and the results:

1. compile to bytecode or native:
"Fatal error: exception Protocol.TkError("Tcl/Tk not initialised")"

2. #load all the libraries into the toplevel (or give them as command 
line arguments) then #use "":

3. Run the toplevel with "" as an argument:
gives an empty Tk window

The results are the same on Mac OS X and Windows XP (mingw).

Here's the toplevel command:
ocaml -I +labltk -I +threads unix.cma labltk.cma threads.cma 
tkthread.cmo life.cma lifeui.cma

or leave off "" and do a #use "".

to compile:

ocamlc -I +labltk -I +threads -o life unix.cma labltk.cma threads.cma 
tkthread.cmo life.cma lifeui.cma

The sources are at

Any ideas about how to get a bytecode or native compiled version working?
