Calling mainloop after setting the value of a ttk.LabeledScale raises an error. The same happens if the value is set after entering the mainloop.

Does not affect python 3.4.3. Does not affect ttk.Scale. No error is raised if you do not call mainloop.

import tkinter as tk
import tkinter.ttk as ttk
root = tk.Tk()
w = ttk.LabeledScale(root)

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "d:\users\u938001\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python35-32\lib\tkinter\", line 1550, in __call__
    return self.func(*args)

    newval = self._variable.get()
  File "d:\users\u938001\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python35-32\lib\tkinter\", line 355, in get
    return self._tk.getint(self._tk.globalgetvar(self._name))
TypeError: getint() argument must be str, not float

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

This is caused by replacing int() by self._tk.getint() in IntVar.get() (issue23880). But the failure can be reproduced even in 3.4 if set tk.wantobjects = 0 before creating root widget.

One way is making getint() accepting floats. This fizes original example, but doesn't solve the issue for tk.wantobjects = 0.

Other way is making IntVar.get() falling back to integer part of getdouble(). This fixes the example in both modes. Proposed patch goes this way.
