I have had no success setting the variables in config.tcl file.

For instance the documents says that you can set display options like

set show_splash_window 0
set usetabbar 0

but that doesn't work I have to use:

{::::show_splash_window 0}
{::::usetabbar 0}

which I had to figure out.  So I guess I'm saying I'm not sure how to
set the font...  Would it be:

set font times
set font helvetica


{::::font times}
{::::font helvetica}

Yes unicode sort of messed up RH8 and RH9 and it still isn't working
correctly, I've changed the default language to en but that doesn't work
(export LANG="en";tkabber.tcl).  So maybe its the font that tcl/tk is
displaying.  Any ideas are appreciated.
