[New-bugs-announce] [issue2754] Mac version of IDLE doesn't scroll as expected

New submission from Alex Robinson <alextrob at gmail.com>:

On a Mac running 10.5.2 in IDLE 1.2.1, the scroll bars don't move as 
expected & track pad/mouse scrolling is not enabled. I believe this is 
also the case on Tiger (10.4)

When using the scroll bar to scroll up through code, the scroll bar 
moves much faster than the mouse pointer. When scrolling down, the mouse 
pointer moves slightly faster.

Unlike Terminal, scrolling using a scroll wheel on a mouse or the two 
fingers on the trackpad doesn't work with IDLE.

I realize these are fairly minor UI issues, but they're still 
frustrating and slow down my workflow.
