in thread Tk tail -f - How?

As a POE user I was under the impression that the Tk tail would fail on Win32 due to the lack of fileevent - I haven't used it recently so it may be fixed.

It is fixed in the latest release, version 0.27. POE works around ActivePerl's Tk fileevent problems by polling internally. All the usual I/O methods (select_{read,write}, the Wheel classes, and Components) should magically start working after an upgrade.
