I tried what you suggested, but the canvas maintains it's edge.
I create the window, Tk(), I create the Frame and add it to the window, then
I create the canvas. Whatever I try with bd=0 on the canvas... and borders
on the frame, the canvas always has this white border outside its own
border. There seems to be nothing I can do about it. Could it have to do
with the order in which things are packed or fit to grid?
