New submission from Ned Deily <nad at acm.org>:

As reported by Alex McNerney in Issue11075 msg127687:

"... running Python 2.7.1:88286 (maintenance) [built from source] on ActiveState Tcl/Tk 8.5.9 causes the idle to hang when a simple script like:
"
x = raw_input("x: ")
print x
"
is run. Is this a bug in Tcl/Tk? Looking in the logs I see several instances of "setCanCycle: is deprecated.  Please use setCollectionBehavior instead" Does this have any relevancy?"

I can reproduce the problem using input with Cocoa Tk 8.5 and Python 3.2rc2 or raw_input with Python 2.7.1+.  It does not seem to happen with Carbon Tk 8.4.  This may be related to Issue10940.  Investigating further for impact on 3.2.
