[Tkinter-discuss] Correct order for dialog display

In my application I have several custom made Toplevel windows when they
close they remember their position and size, so the next time to open
them using with the same geometry.
Therefore in the show method I have the following sequence
self.geometry("%dx%d+%d+%d", self.width, self.height, self.x,
In my linux Fedora-13, Ubuntu 10.04 etc.. works Ok.
However on Mac, Fedora-13 through a virtual machine (VirtualBox) or over
the network the geometry card seems to be ignored.
The window appears to be where the window manager likes with size
whatever Tk likes
If I change the order like
then it works on all systems, BUT first it displays the window where the
window manager likes with the standard size that Tk calculates AND THEN
it move&resize to the correct position.
On fast machines is not a problem, but on slow machines or X11 over the
network it becomes annoying.
So my question is:
if I want to position and resize a Toplevel window (before it is
shown), so when it is displayed to have the dimensions/position that I
choose, what is the correct order of commands to use in order to work in
Thanks in advance
