New submission from Antoine Pitrou <pitrou at free.fr>:

After a few keystrokes in the interactive interpreter, I got the
following traceback:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "Lib/idlelib/idle.py", line 11, in <module>
  File "/home/antoine/py3k/__svn__/Lib/idlelib/PyShell.py", line 1420,
in main
  File "/home/antoine/py3k/__svn__/Lib/tkinter/__init__.py", line 1009,
in mainloop
UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf8' codec can't decode byte 0xc0 in position 0:
invalid start byte

The keystrokes were ['d', 'i', Ctrl+Space], which briefly displayed the
completion popup before crashing.
