True, that's not what I meant, however -- whether it is Python or IDLE that
is affected by the problem. Since Python itself is OK, no problem.

Strangling IDLE continued:

in DOS box I tried

>>> s=''
>>> for i in range(10000):
...     s=s+`range(i,i+20)`
...

>>> len(s)
1178515

and everything is OK.

While the same loop in IDLE crashed it (I mean it hangs for some period, then it
stops responding and has to be killed).
