[issue8427] toplevel jumps to another location on the screen
"python jumpBug.py" creates two windows, "root" and "other".
If the first thing you do is click on "other", then hit <p>, the printed geometry string will show the position of the window "root".
By contrast, if you first click on "root", then on "other", followed by <p>, the correct position of "other" is shown.
As mentioned before, this happens on OS X Tiger but not on my FreeBSD machine, or new Mac laptop running Snow Leopard.
I've isolated that the erratic jumping of windows I mentioned in the initial bug report is caused by calling .geometry with incorrect geometry strings.
