[Idle-dev] Additional remark concerning -Qnew with IDLE 1.0

just observed (for the second time :-( )
that the -Qnew switch dowsn't work with IDLE 1.0
except in -n mode. I.e.:


python.exe -Qnew idle.pyw

IDLE does not perform float-division with integer arguments,
whereas with

python.exe -Qnew idle.pyw -n

new division works.
This seem strange and inconsistent?
