Did you try it?  Did it work?

I tried, using button.invoke(), and a few less obvious ways
(self.tk.call()...), but couldn't do it programatically.  I don't
understand why manually clicking the button in the gui is any
different than calling it's function, or calling invoke().  I'd be
interested to know.

I also tried calling it from a different thread, or giving the gui
some time to initialize before calling it.  No love.  Only manually
clicking it seems to work.

I also found some documentation that clearly states "overrideredirect
might not work on some platforms."  So I guess I have one of those
