Actually having a little problem w/this one, due largely to not having
worked with tk before.  Will keep banging on this one till I figure
out unless someone else is more familiar.  Seems the status frame is
expanding based on the length of the test name.  I can't seem to
figure out how to prevent this.

Not done, but high on my priority list. The naming convention used
where I work doesn't follow the default globbing pattern so I need to
override this myself.
