Tough Tkinter Scrollregion vs Window Size Problem

P: n/a

Below is a simple code snippet showing a Tkinter Window bearing a
canvas and 2 connected scrollbars (Vertical & Horizontal). Works fine.
When you shrink/resize the window the scrollbars adjust accordingly.
However, what I really want to happen is that the area of the canvas
that the scrollbars show (the Scrollregion) should expand as the window
grows. It doesn't currently do this. although, if the window shrinks
smaller than the original canvas-size, then the scrollregion adjusts
properly.
How can I make it such that the Scrollregion fills the entire space
avaialable to it. I tried all permutations of setting
expand=Tkinter.YES and fill=Tkinter.BOTH in the pack command??

self._canvasFrame = Tkinter.Frame(self._overallFrame, bd=1,
relief=Tkinter.SUNKEN)

self._canvas = Tkinter.Canvas(self._canvasFrame,
background="white", width=self._canvasWidth,
height=self._canvasHeight,)
# Scroll Bars

print "=" * 50
print "\n"

root = Tkinter.Tk()
app = testApp2(root)
root.mainloop()
