Ned Deily <nad at acm.org> added the comment:

This is almost certainly due to using the Apple-supplied Tcl/Tk 8.5 in Mac OS X 10.6.  The Apple-suppied version of Tcl/Tk is buggy to the point of being unusable with Tkinter applications, in particular IDLE.  There are many duplicate issues on similar problems, for instance, Issue12269.  One solution is to use a current 64-bit/32-bit python.org installer (at the moment, 2.7.3 is the latest for Python 2) *and* install the latest ActiveState Tcl/Tk 8.5.  See http://www.python.org/download/mac/tcltk/ for more details.
