It's a bug in the garbage collector, which has been fixed
in the current code base. It only affects code that uses
an internal "tuple resizing" function.
Do "import gc; gc.disable()" before you start using the
canvas might help.
Comment out the _flatten accelerator code in Tkinter.py
(around line 70):
# try: _flatten = _tkinter._flatten
# except AttributeError: pass
Wait for 2.0b2, which will be out after the weekend.
