[Edu-sig] turtle module + win2K

Hi all,

I've been experimenting with Python as a language (a possible 
replacement for Scheme) for the 9th grade class I'm teaching, and was 
pleased to find a turtle graphics module in it.  I'm now frustrated 
with that, though, since its behavior (at least under Windows) is 
pretty unpleasant--the window fails to redraw once the turtle stops 
moving, leaving it looking like the thing is hanging.

Is this a Tk problem, or a poorly-written turtle module?  More 
importantly, is there a convenient solution to this, aside from making 
the IDLE shell/editor windows much smaller to accommodate the turtle 
window?  I'm not averse to patching the module if need be, but I can't 
afford the time to poke around in the code and library docs.

Any info would be appreciated.
