My experience with tkinter and Python 3.2 is more positive. I wrote a GUI for an editing program (editing like publishers think of it, not programmers) that was fairly complex with three different list boxes, an information pane, a toolbar, and a pane for the text being edited (implemented with a Text widget).  Admittedly it took a little trial and error to perfect the layout of the various frames, but when it was done, I was pleased with the appearance, functionality, and performance.
