Packing of Frames

Hi,

I have two frames(left & right) into which I place names (left) and
vlaues (right).

The left Frame adheres to my constraints but the right expands
vertically beyond my constraints.

I do it thus:

root = Tk()
root.geometry('350x300')

root.leftFrame = Frame(width=150, height=300, bg='gray50',
relief=RAISED, bd=4)
root.rightFrame = Frame(width=200, height=300, bg='gray50',
relief=RAISED, bd=4)
root.setup = ui.getSetupValues()
root.rightFrame.pack(fill=X, side=RIGHT)
root.rightFrame.pack_propagate(0)
root.leftFrame.pack(fill=BOTH)
root.leftFrame.pack_propagate(0)

myRow = 0
for eachKey in root.setup.keys():
     l = Label(root.leftFrame, text=string.strip(eachKey), 
         bg='gray50',anchor=E, justify=RIGHT)
     r = Entry(root.rightFrame, bg='gray100', width=200,
relief=GROOVE)
     l.grid(row=myRow, sticky=E+W )
     r.insert(INSERT, string.strip(root.setup[eachKey]))
     r.pack()

root.mainloop()

any ideas?
