Antoine Pitrou <pitrou at free.fr> added the comment:

I can't reproduce either, but the latest traceback posted in msg127985 seems to hint at a parameter marshalling problem. "create" is one of the parameters to the called Tk function, but it seemed to be mistaken for another.

Since it's arguably threading-related, saying "I can't reproduce" doesn't seem like a sufficient reason to close the issue. There can be all kinds of influencing factors (OS, CPU, background tasks) and the marshalling code in Modules/_tkinter.c is far from trivial.
