Its actually a bug in Tk, IIRC.  I had a discussion on #tcl about it.   
I don't remember the detail , here's one descrtipn:

:<jenglish> frame/toplevel/labelframes always make a geometry request  
whenever you [$w configure] them.  If they have a geometry master, it  
will see the <Configure> event, restart the geometry propagation  
dance, and settle back to where things were when they started

Which version of Pd-extended are you seeing this in?
