New submission from Somelauw <Somelauw at yahoo.com>:

I'm using python 3.0 final which was released on December the 3th.
I also have python 2.5 installed.

2 bugs in python3 IDLE which might be related (but don't have to)

The Python3 IDLE sometimes suddenly closes.
It always happens when I'm using it for a while, then press the shift +
home or end key and then it just disappears and my unsaved work is lost.
It really completely exits without an error and I also don't see it on
the background.

I'm unable to reproduce the error. But it usually happens when I have
hold down shift and press the home key.

When I have some code then scroll down the code, then hold down shift
and press up a few times, then press home the selected code completely
Instead some code above the cursor suddenly gets selected.

The reason I think both are related is because both involve shift + home

Both of the bugs have never happened in the IDLE 1.2.1 which was part of
python 2.5.2
I think
