Short description of error
Upon changing to the "Texture Paint" Workspace, the following traceback error message pops-up.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Path\To\Blender\2.80\blender-2.80.0-git.74db65e5424-windows64\2.80\scripts\startup\bl_ui\", line 538, in draw

TypeError: wmTools.from_space_image_mode(): error with argument 1, "mode" -  enum "PAINT" not found in ('VIEW', 'UV')

location: <unknown location>:-1

It also continually pops-up and closes if the user tries to split the window views within the Texture Paint Workspace causing issues with navigating Blender.

An additional error can be seen in this screenshot, that is not output to the info panel (...line 2335, in execute...).

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Open the default Blender scene, navigate to the "Texture Paint" Workspace along the top bar.
