Serhiy, I applied your patch but I still get the same error. 

From what I have found so far, the FromObj function in Modules/_tkinter.c relies on cached values for different Tcl_ObjType, as given in the TkappObject struct. From the comment:

    /* We cannot include tclInt.h, as this is internal.
       So we cache interesting types here. */

I haven't traced down the exact difference between 8.5 and 8.6 that causes the existing cached types to not match. The correct behavior from 8.5 is a match to "StringType". I've noticed a lot more macros in the 8.6 headers than in 8.5 which may be the culprit.
