Jerome,
  Noted, thanks. I think there is at least one other plugin that has
a problem aside from clone reps and the RMSD visualizer, but I'm drawing
a blank just this moment. I think we're going to have to test every single
plugin with a GUI to ensure that they work correctly under 8.6.x.

I've wanted to update to Tk 8.6.x because it cures some problems with
internationalization that plagued 8.5.x. These Tk 8.6 compatibility
issues and challenges revolving around recent updates to MacOS X
have setup some new barriers that have to be overcome before VMD builds
made against Tk 8.6.x can be shipped.

Cheers,
  John
