tkinter is a bit stupid, as it does not report the command that was 
passed to Tcl. It would be helpful if you printed it out before the 
call, i.e.

print(_flatten((self._w, cmd)) + self._options(cnf))

Can you inject this into both versions of the code?

There is something about fonts. It could also have something to do with 
Xft, a compile-time option of Tk, to use fontconfig (vague guess).
