Thanks. Yes, Tk uses overrideredirect to do this. I have found a way to work around it, by using 'popup', instead of 'toplevel' The 'move' method to work. Is a 'popup' window going to work like a 'toplevel' in most cases?

Basically, the problem is that fvwm2 is not behaving nicely, as it predates the netwm spec (which was created to solve problems such as this, iirc). 'popup' is supposed to be used for "special" windows that aren't really normal and may be ignored by the window manager: Enumerations.html#GtkWindowType
