Thanks for confirming that it is not just my system!

  I'm pretty sure that it the problem is in Tk rather than 
Python/Tkinter , as I can do Entry_widget.cget('txt') and get the 
right string back, and can even cut and paste from the Entry widget 
to other apps and still get the original Unicode back ( well, UTF-8, 
but it is still correct).

Looks like I will have to go spelunking in TK to find the cause - 
anyone have suggestions about where to start?
