IDLE opens the script many than once. There are two cases:
 (1) first open when IDLE read the file content to display it
 (2) second open on pressing F5 key (Run Module) to check the syntax

(1) uses IOBinding and fails to open ISO-8859-1 file with UTF-8 

(2) uses ScriptBinding and fails to open UTF-8 file with ASCII locale.

About the initial problem (idle-3.0rc1-quits-when-run.py), yes, I 
forgot to say that you have to run the module, sorry :-/
