I've been running into a bug recently and reduced the code to the following:

import Tkinter                    
tk = Tkinter.Tk()
window = Tkinter.Frame(tk)
def onDestroy (event):
window.bind ("<Destroy>", onDestroy)

Just run and the following will be displayed: 
Fatal Python error: PyEval_RestoreThread: NULL tstate

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.

If you add window.mainloop(), the issue goes aware.  However, I don't do that in my case.  window.update(), by the way, still causes the crash if that is of any interest (I found this tinkering)..

I'm running with:
 - Window 7
 - Python 2.7.2
 - 64-bit machine, but 32-bit Python
