I'm *also* intercepting keypress events:

to get the focus to move along when the enter key is pressed.

The Enter key in an Entry actually causes the Entry to emit the "activate" signal. Try connecting to that instead of to the key- pressed event. That way not only is it more obvious what you're doing, there's less likelihood of getting fouled up by order of operations in key event handling, which is kinda what sounds like is happening.

If the monkey could type one keystroke every nanosecond, the expected waiting time until the monkey types out Hamlet is so long that the estimated age of the universe is insignificant by comparison ... this is not a practical method for writing plays.
