[spinbox .path/to/widget -from 0 -to 100 ...] causes the created spinbox to have the value 0, but the value is empty for the analagous [::ttk::spinbox].

This difference in behavior is intentional.  Tile widget policy is that linked -variables and -textvariables are only changed by explicit user or program action.

This is an incompatibility with the core widgets, but it leads to more predictable behavior.
