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)
