Summary: IDLE crashes on OS X 10.4 when "Preferences" selected

Initial Comment:
When I select 'preferences' (on IDLE 1.2, Python 2.5)  or 'Configure IDLE' (IDLE 1.1.4, Python 2.4.4 and IDLE 1.0, Python 2.3.3), Python crashes as soon as the dialog box appears.

Terminal reports a "Segmentation fault" upon the crash.

My system is an iMac G5 with 1 GB ram running OS X v 10.4.8, Tcl/Tk 8.4.10, and seems otherwise stable.  

IDLE also appears stable until I select this option.

The Python crash log is attached.

Please, can anyone suggest what may be causing this problem?  Thank you.

Erratum:

A similar problem arises with WinXP when trying to configure IDLE via the
"Options>Configure IDLE..." menu.

Clicking on the 'Ok' or 'Apply' buttons of the dialog seemingly has no
effect. However when closing the window by clicking on either the window
close button (top right 'X') or the 'Cancel' button, several bahaviors
are
observed depending on how many times one has clicked on the 'Ok' and/or
---->'Apply'<---- buttons before:
- 0 clicks => expected behavior (dialog is closed, IDLE session is
resumed
and working fine)
- 1 or 2 clicks => dialog is closed but the IDLE shell behaves as a text
editor instead of an interpreter
- 3 or more clicks => IDLE crashes...

Note: I'm running Python 2.5 (r25:51908, Sep 19 2006, 09:52:17) [MSC
v.1310 32 bit (Intel)] on win32 -> WinXP SP2
