Yep. I realized this was an alternative, just after I posted my question.
(I should learn to think first and bother other people later ...)
"create_window" does really solve my problem rather completely, it seems
so now anyway.

I tried your code from this page earlier, but decided to go for a
different approach as I want the entry field to be of fixed size.

Anyway, thanks Fredrik for your help!
