Unfortunately, it did not help in my case. The text is displayed in the
drawing only after the button is clicked again, even if update_idletasks()
is called.

I wonder, whether there is a mechanism suspending the Tkinter event loop, so
that other event-based applications (not using Tkinter) could get access,
and perform their duties.
