Thanks for the additional output.  It demonstrates that the problem you've encountered is an old known issue with pydoc help when there are modules that cause exceptions upon importing.  And the additional issue Roger brought up is also due to pydoc importing modules.  Neither of these is specific to IDLE environments.  There are a number of open duplicate and/or closely related issues on the bug tracker, including #12901, #10060, and #11995.  Let's move further discussion to one of those.
