If it is an option for you, you could try Tk-8.5, which includes a new iconphoto

root = Tk()
img = PhotoImage(file='your-icon')
root.tk.call('wm', 'iconphoto', root._w, img)

You might want to have a look at the wm manpage where all these are explained in more detail
and you will find out quickly how to "translate" this into Tkinter.
