[Tkinter-discuss] resize notification

I've found that the generation of the <Configure> can also change  
from OS to OS, and from system to system with the same OS.  Tkinter  
on Windows seems to only generate the <Configure> when you are  
finished resizing (which may or may not be what you want), and some  
Linux/Solaris/OSX systems generate it (a lot) while you are moving  
the mouse (which may or may not be what you want).  I don't know how  
to change it, but I think generating the <Configure> while the mouse  
is moving may be a configuration option of X11, so you may have to  
allow for either case.
