I noticed your Gentoo builders running gui tests some years ago.  When I 
re-checked perhaps a year ago, they either were not running or seem to 
have skipped test_idle, maybe the former.

Rechecking now, on Gentoo

test_idle appears and passed on these 3.6 and 3.7 pages

Neither Firefox nor Edge can find 'test_idle' on these 3.x pages

test_tk appears on 1130 but not 1149

For your 8.1 bot: test_idle passed for 3.7

but does is not found on this 3.x page (neither is 'test_tk')

Both Appveyor and my machine run test_idle when running the full 3.x 
test suite.
