New submission from Peter Heiberg <peter at sveumsondre.no>:

I recently installed Win7 on my laptop, and installed the x86 Python 2.7 package.  IDLE fails to even start, and shows nothing but a process in task manager.  I've tried compatibility modes both to Vista and XPSP2, with no luck.

I ran 2.7 x86 on the same laptop in XPSP2, and I am also able to run 2.7 x86 on another computer using the exact same version of Win7.

Command line works fine, by the way.
