What do you call a "zoom box"? There's no widget with this name in "regular" 
Tkinter widgets, so it must be built with some other one... Which one is it? A 
button, a menubutton, or what else?

If you had some (simple) code showing the problem, that would also help a lot to 
understand what's going on...
