ok, maybe we can try to track down the problem.
First, I am quite sure that it is not a python problem but rather one
with Tk and your WM, so we can try the most simple example in tcl:

entry .e
grid .e -column 0 -row 0
bind . <Alt-s> {puts "Alt-s pressed"}
focus .e

If you store this as test.tcl and then run it with $ wish test.tcl , is it
the same as in your Python example?

Then, which window manager are you using, and can you try it with some
other WM(s) , does the problem persist then?

Then, which version of Tk are you using, and, if your distribution offers
this, can you try and install a second Tcl/Tk-version and try if it is the
same with this one?
