The widget names look fine to, and the 3.6 naming is way better, because
it can be used for debugging more easily. The behaviour you describe can
have two reasons, a) the same widget can be packed twice b) the widgets
use the same variable. In Tk, a widget does not need an associate
variable - which can be done by setting the variable to an empty string,
or by leaving this option off.
Presumably Python 3.6 passes anything else than an empty string to Tk as
the -variable option, maybe a mistranslated None? Can't test it myself,
but in your example you could, for instance, check the output of
self.call(w, 'configure'), which lists you the Tk side configuration, or
self.call(w, 'configure', '-variable') to get specifically the bound
