[issue8427] toplevel jumps to another location on the screen
Andrei Paraschivescu <andreip1@comcast.net> added the comment:

"python jumpBug.py" creates two windows, "root" and "other".

If the first thing you do is click on "other", then hit <p>, the printed geometry string will show the position of the window "root".

By contrast, if you first click on "root", then on "other", followed by <p>, the correct position of "other" is shown.

As mentioned before, this happens on OS X Tiger but not on my FreeBSD machine, or new Mac laptop running Snow Leopard.

I've isolated that the erratic jumping of windows I mentioned in the initial bug report is caused by calling .geometry with incorrect geometry strings.

Thanks for supplying the test case. I can reproduce the incorrect behavior by using Python 2.7 and the Apple-supplied system Tcl/Tk 8.4 on OS X 10.4. But if a current ActiveState Tcl/Tk 8.4 is used with the same Python and OS X, the correct behavior is seen. The Apple-supplied Tcl/Tk on OS X 10.4 is very old; if you need to use Tkinter-based applications there, you should install an ActiveState Tcl/Tk 8.4 and a current Python that is supported with it, for example, from the current 32-bit-only Python 2.7.3 or 3.2.3 python.org installers. More info here: http://www.python.org/download/mac/tcltk/
