I believe that the difficulty in finding such a tutorial points to a true lack of support for Tkinter (although the standard docs in the Python manual have gotten somewhat better). Tkinter has really been set aside (IMO) for more powerful and more complete frameworks such as wxPython. See GUI Programming in Python.

If you shrink the window to smaller than the area of the canvas, the scroll-bars work as advertised. That's great. However, if you click the Left Mouse button, it calls code which expands the width of the canvas by 100...
