This is a duplicate of Issue6864.  The problem is seen with the Apple-supplied IDLE in OS X 10.6 and appears to be an interaction with IDLE 2.6 and the Apple-supplied Cocoa Tk 8.5. One workaround is to install Python 2.6.5 using the python.org OS X installer and use its IDLE which does not exhibit this problem because it is linked with Tk 8.4.  Or, if you can use Python 2.5 instead, you may be OK with Apple's built-in /usr/bin/idle2.5 .
