Strange, because I've never seen any other reports of this.

What happens in you run this Python in the script editor?

gTextColumnWidthIndex = mel.eval("$tempVar=$gTextColumnWidthIndex;") 

print -gTextColumnWidthIndex

Do you get the same error?

I suppose you could change line 45 like this:

                    aof=[('swatchLabel', "right", -int(gTextColumnWidthIndex))],

but the question is why does this happen on this one system?

In response to the Python code I get this '# Error: TypeError: file <maya console> line 3: bad operand type for unary -: 'unicode' # ' instead of line 45 as it was in the above example. I'm using Maya 2019.
