[New-bugs-announce] [issue24137] Force not using _default_root in IDLE

New submission from Serhiy Storchaka:

Perhaps explicitly calling NoDefaultRoot() in IDLE will help to catch some possible bugs (in IDLE or in Tkinter). It should be called only when IDLE is ran in subprocess mode, so it will not affect user code that uses Tkinter. _default_root is used mainly for interactive experiments with Tkinter.

It is worth also to call NoDefaultRoot() in IDLE tests (see Tkinter tests as a guide).
