I just wanted to confirm, that there isn't a bug in idle nor tk, but 
somwhere in my istalled fonts.
Now while testing python 3.1a1, when I also have a font containing ẞ 
LATIN CAPITAL LETTER SHARP S (DejaVu), it's more clear.
Printing this character using a default font in idle I get the wrong 
glyph mentioned in the report; however this is corrected immediately 
after changing the font to DejaVu.
Some of the fonts on my system seems to "shadow" this newly added 
character with a wrong glyph (also preventing tk to find a font realy 
suporting this).

Sorry for the needles bug report.
