Jeroen, if you try running "help()" from a command-line python2.7, rather than in IDLE, what results do you get?  Most likely, Python will crash there and there should be an exception and traceback printed, in which case the problem has nothing to do with IDLE directly.  Note that there have been some improvements to pydoc's robustness since 2.7.2 was released (for instance, the changes for issue7425 and issue7367).

(Terry, are you sure you meant Issue12092?)
