Ned Deily <nad at acm.org> added the comment:
Unfortunately, there are some major stability problems with IDLEs that are linked with the Apple-supplied Tcl/Tk 8.5 in OS X 10.6. (See, for instance, Issue9763 and Issue10537.) That includes the current python.org 2.7.1 64-bit installer. The simplest workaround at the moment is to use the other, 32-bit-only 2.7.1 installer for OS X available here: http://www.python.org/download/releases/2.7.1/
It uses the Apple Tcl/Tk 8.4 or ActiveTcl 8.4, if present, neither of which exhibits these kinds of problems.
resolution: -> duplicate
stage: -> committed/rejected
status: open -> closed
superseder: -> OS X IDLE 2.7 from 64-bit installer hangs when you paste something.
