Last summer in the context of the Google Summer of Code a Brazilian 
student named Guilherme Polo fixed a large number of problems with IDLE. 
Supposedly this will some day end up in the standard Python release. In 
the meantime, you can get this version, called VIDLE for now, at 
vpython.org. Perhaps it will solve your problems.

It is a real pain if the work has not been saved. I am running it on a fairly new iMac running OSX 10.6.2. Is this a common problem for this version? Thank you in advance.
