In working with the ttk.Combobox (Windows XP, Python 3.1), I have found that setting the values for the popdown using ttk.Combobox['values'] has an problem converting the string to the proper Tcl value when (and this is the only instance I have found) there is a backslash in the string but no spaces.  In this case, the string will translate if it is enclosed in curly brackets '{'+mystring+'}', which I believe is the Tcl syntax to not make substitutions.

I have attached a short script that illustrates this issue.
