New submission from Kent Yip <yesk13 at gmail.com>:

IDLE will hang when a tooltip shows in a Linux system (Ubuntu).

do this:

t = (1,2,3)

it will hang after the closing ')', when you press return nothing will happen or when you press any keys, it won't show up. 

However, you can work around this hangup by clicking on the IDLE menus on top or clicking on a different application on your desktop and return to IDLE and press Enter will work again

tested on python2.5, python2.6, python3.0 on linux machine 

however in windows vista with python3.1 the tooltip hangup doesn't exist. Only in Linux does it behave like that.
