Hello again!
I found another kind of bug, where the autosupplement window doesn't show up. 
In order for the bug to occur, you need to put a non-string value into `locals()`.
locals()['arg'] = 123  # or locals().setdefault('arg', 123)
# ^ it's okay

locals()[123] = 123  # or locals().setdefault(123, 123)
# ^ completion window is not shown
Of course, I know that "Whether or not updates to this dictionary will affect name lookups in the local scope and vice-versa not covered by any backwards compatibility guarantees" , but take a little bug :)

Here is the traceback of the error
Exception in Tkinter callback
