Hi,
  This looks to me like a failure with Tcl/Tk's support for internationalized
input handlers (e.g. SCIM and the like). I see that the fault appears to
occur at the point where the Tk international input handler is triggered:

The best workaround in the short term is to disable international input
handling when running VMD in interactive mode with Tk. I'm working toward
VMD 1.9.4 builds using a different Tk version that should not exhibit
this problem, as I believe it is a bug in Tk itself.

Best regards,
