This is due to an old Tk bug (http://sourceforge.net/p/tktoolkit/bugs/2722/) still present in the Apple-supplied versions of Tcl/Tk 8.5 on OS X.  See https://www.python.org/download/mac/tcltk/ and/or Issue22566. If you are using Python 3.4.x from a python.org installer, install a newer version of Tcl/Tk 8.5 in /Library/Frameworks (not /System/Library/Frameworks) from ActiveState or build your own.
