The issue turns out to be this: one must keep a reference to the image
object other than just passing it to Label.config(), otherwise it will
be "finalized" as soon as the variable naming it goes out of scope. And
Probably a good part of the ppl seeing this error and asking on
StackOverflow would solve it this way, but not many answers mention it.
My project can be seen here:
Sorry to say that to make use of it you need a repository of cover art
in a very specific format which I still need to document. That will be
the next step, after I recover from this battle.
Please *no* private copies of mailing list or newsgroup messages.
