Problem with the xticks property when saving a plot, which worked a few days ago

Hey guys,
I have a problem with a piece of plotting code, that previously worked like a charm, but creates an error due to some of the latest updates now. Here is a MWE:

using Plots
using PyPlot

x = 0:100
y = x

pygui( true)
plt = Plots.plot( x, y, xticks=( 0:10:100, 0:10:100))

Plots.savefig( plt, "test.png")

I have already figured out that the problem is caused by xticks, but I don’t know how to fix it.
The error this code creates is

LoadError: MethodError: no method matching getindex(::Int64, ::UnitRange{Int64})

As this seems to be a bug I have now opened an issue on github at the Plots repository.
However if anyone knew a solution or workaround, an answer would still be appreciated.
