Geometry option in Tk()

Using TK, I've got a window that I can set the size of using the 
toplevel widget.....but even thought the window changes sizes according 
to my .geometry option, I can't "read" the information back from the 
toplevel widget correctly.....

root.geometry("50x50+100+100") #Set the window to a size and pos
print root.geometry()
 >>RETURNS: 1x1+100+100

The x & y position information is correct, but the width and height info 
always returns as 1 & 1.

Why would this be if the widget is taking/drawing correctly?
