I had been playing with the first wm geometry $name $geometry call in 
pdtk_canvas_new and had overlooked there was another one some 15 lines 
down, so that changing the second one to something like wm geometry 
$name  300x250+0+35 seems to improve things.. but I'm sure it's terribly 
hacky, breaks something else and not at all elegant - i.e. tk gurus' 
wisdom still appreciated :)
