Correction!  That was not what was happening.  Simple mistake in my code
was bypassing the call to the fuction with the after() statement and
running my main data processing routine directly.  I had forgot to bind
<Return> to the routine with after() in it.   So, program worked OK when I
clicked the button but not when I hit Return!.  Dumb...
