Sorry, no idea. I am not a user of multi-screen displays. BrowseEntry is creating quite early a Toplevel widget for the popdown, and immediately withdraws it from the screen. So probably the windowing system does not notice that the browseentry widget moved, and leaves the withdrawn toplevel on the old screen. How is the multi-screen display implemented? Are there different DISPLAY variables available for the screens, e.g. ":0.0" and ":0.1"? Regards, Slaven
