New submission from Terry J. Reedy:

Windows 7 (32 bit?), 32 bit IDLE 3.3.2: When I start from the start menu, the taskbar icon is the red Tk icon instead of the IDLE icon. If I try to pin the Tk icon to the task bar, a useless pythonw icon is pinned instead. The Tk icon goes when the program is closed. After multiple open and frequent program deletions, Idle shows up on the Start/frequent programs list with it normal Idle icon (White page + snake).

(I had 3.3.1 before working fine. The 3.3.2 upgrade did not work (tkinter would not import, so I redownloaded, deleted Python 3.3.2, and reinstalled, getting the behavior above.)

I have seen the Tk icon before after fresh installs, but on other machines, and it was replaced after the first open with the correct icon.
