Thanks for this code.  Alas, on my XP machine, the roll handler is called,
and after a few calls tcl83.dll crashes.  I don't think I've ever seen a
hard tcl crash like this before.

I didn't explicitly call focus_set(), and I suppose that shouldn't matter:
the roll handler is only called when the canvas has focus.  The Text widgets
work properly as they always have.
