I have not read the whole thread, so I am not sure if this actually was
the root of your problem, but if you do:
from Tkinter import *
from ttk import *
of course the LabelFrame class imported from ttk will override the one
that came from Tkinter! You can easily verify this from a shell:
Python 2.6.6 (r266:84292, Dec 27 2010, 00:02:40)
[GCC 4.4.5] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> from Tkinter import *
<class Tkinter.LabelFrame at 0xf708bbfc>
>>> from ttk import *
<class ttk.Labelframe at 0xf62eb89c>
So while it is generally considered to be save to
do "from Tkinter import *" I would strongly recommend to prefer "import
ttk" to "from ttk import *" in order to avoid namespace confusion.
