If I had to guess, I'd say the problem is that you aren't using Tk
correctly. You really need to run

root = Tk()

to be confident everything will work as advertised. Which means you'll
need to re-structure your program a bit.

Tk, as GUI toolkits go, is surprisingly effective without its mainloop
running; many GUI toolkits won't even get that far. However, in my
experience, you'll get random-seeming failures from anything that requires
events to work properly, and "mouse clicking" is an event.
