The fonts supplied with Tk should be at the top. It is really strange
that only two fonts work for you :(
I am attaching a simple script that could help us determine if the
problem is somewhere in BKChem or in the Tk library of the python-tk
Could you please tell me if you see 3 alphas or something different when
running the test code?
