I don't have a win32 box here, on my linux box the following works fine:

class Mybutton(Tkinter.Button):
    def __init__(self, master, **kw):
        Tkinter.Button.__init__(self, master, **kw)
        self.bind('<Return>', lambda event: self.event_generate('<space>'))

and then use the Mybutton class like a regular Tkinter.Button.
