[Edu-sig] turtle module + win2K

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.
