New submission from jamesie <post06 at jamesie.de>:

IDLE 3.1b1 crashes when I press Control-SPACE in order to invoke Show
Completions from the Edit submenu. When I run that funtionality from the
menu it works ok.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/idle3", line 5, in <module>
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.1/idlelib/PyShell.py", line 1420, in main
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.1/tkinter/__init__.py", line 1009, in
UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf8' codec can't decode bytes in position 0-1:
illegal encoding

I rund a hand-compiled Python 3.1b1 on Debian/GNU Linux Lenny.
