[New-bugs-announce] [issue7050] (x,y) += (1,2) crashes IDLE

New submission from Mark Fitzgerald <mark.fitzgerald2 at sympatico.ca>:

Start up IDLE.  Type "(x,y) += (1,2)" (without the double-quotes), then
press Enter.  IDLE unexpectedly terminates without message, pop-up, or
warning.  Admittedly, this line of code is likely not legal, but
shouldn't it just raise SyntaxError?
