[Tkinter-discuss] busy cursor stores up events

Is there a way to prevent widgets from servicing events accumulated
during the busy period?

I've been looking at the 2nd example at

Although the widgets do not respond to user events while the system is
'busy', they seem to register user events. When the system returns to
the 'not busy' state, all the events are then processed. For instance,
if I try to click the button repeatedly while 'busy', the gui doesn't
respond (that's good). But when it's no longer busy, the button command
prints out a whole column of 'hello's from the stored up events.
