New submission from Kevin Walzer:

I've just updated to Tk 8.5 on OS X (Leopard, 10.5.1) and have rebuilt 
Python to link to the new version of Tk. I'm seeing tons of weird error 
messages in my logs when I run IDLE:

12/20/07 8:18:46 PM [0x0-0xa50a5].org.python.IDLE[1300] Break on 
ALITY___YOU_MUST_EXEC__() to debug. 
12/20/07 8:18:46 PM [0x0-0xa50a5].org.python.IDLE[1300] The process has 
forked and you cannot use this CoreFoundation functionality safely. You 
MUST exec(). 

I'm not sure if this is a showstopper bug or not, but I'm a bit 
concerned about all these error messages. Can someone investigate?
