The current test_configdialog creates an instance of ConfigDialog.  Time to add some real tests so I can comfortably work on multiple other configdialog issues.

  The challenge is to do it so tests run without a blocking mainloop call and without IDLE's tcl update calls.  Explicit root.update call can be added if needed.  I also want to test without making the dialog visible.  This is a problem for at least some event_generate calls, but their seem to be (mostly) better options.  Buttons and Radiobuttons for both tk and ttk have an invoke method that works fine.  Entry widget insert seems to work also to trigger that test action.

Attached are partial tests for two of the four main tabs.

Patch makes two types of change to configdialog.  1. Make tested widgets visible to their methods can be called.  2. Delete an erroneous command argument for General tab radiobutton.  Calling SetKeysType on the General tab just redid adjustments on the Keys tab that were already done.
