Newbie problem with Tkinter

I'm trying to use the <Configure> event in Tkinter, but it always
returns the exact same width and height regardless of the actual size of
the frame.  Here is a simple example:

#! /usr/local/bin/python

from Tkinter import *

root = Tk()

def callback(event):
    print "New width and height:", event.width, event.height

frame = Frame(root, width=100, height=100)
frame.bind("<Configure>", callback)


Every time I resize the window, the result is the same:

New width and height: 100 100
New width and height: 100 100
New width and height: 100 100

etc, regardless of the actual size.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I'm using Python 2.0b2 and
Tkinter 2.0 on a Redhat 6.1 Linux intel computer.  I also tried it using
Python 1.5.2 and got the same results.
