Without the $mainwindow->configure the height was 100px (but the
width was ok). Strangely, after I added

   $mainwindow->configure(-height => $rh);

the height was fine, but then the width suddenly became 100px,
so I had to add the $rw variable for that.

Finally, since $rw was there anyway, it made sense to add an extra
20px for the scrollbar just for cosmetics.

I do not claim any of this makes sense. The non-Tcl versions of
Tk are often confusing, like this.

Best wishes,
