[Tkinter-discuss] Unwanted Text widget bindings

I'm running on a Debian/Gnome Linux box.
The "Text" widget comes with a bunch of free bindings to various control
codes, <Control-a> for "home", <Control-B> for "cursor left" and so on,
none of which I want for my application. Most of these I can get rid of
by doing w.unbind_class('Text','<Control-whatever>'), but the bindings
for Control-x (cut), Control-c (copy) and Control-v (paste) are
different; they persist even after unbind, unbind_class and unbind_all.
I know you CAN get rid of them because Guido manages it just fine in
Idle. However, several hours of pouring over the Idle source has not
left me any closer to figuring out just how Idle manages to defeat these
If any of you list members know what the secret is or can point me to
some documentation that covers this issue I would *very* much appreciate it.
