[issue8515] idle "Run Module" (F5) does not set __file__ variable

New submission from Bruce Frederiksen <dangyogi at gmail.com>:
The python CLI always sets the __file__ variable, whether run as:
$ python foobar.py
$ python -m foobar
>>> import foobar # __file__ set in foobar module
The idle program sets the __file__ variable properly when you do the import from the idle shell, but __file__ is not set with the "Run Module" (F5) command from the editor.
I've included a patch file to set __file__, but it doesn't del it after the module has run. But maybe this is OK, because the os.chdir is not undone either???
