I am on a Conda environment with Python 3.7.4 with the corresponding
Tkinter 8.6 that came with it. I tried to use some apps I compiled with
Pyinstaller and all of them caused this crash. So I tried line by line on
the terminal (to cross out Pyinstaller as the problem) and "root = tk.Tk()"
was where it crashed for me.

Here are more people with the same issues:

As Ronald said, most certainly it is a macOS bug, but I don't think they
will bother to fix this when they are so close to their 10.15 release :/
