I am posting this in the news group as I can not access

The following problems were seen while testing Python1.6a:

1) I had to recompile the source to python1.6a under windows to get the
python16.lib file to link with my extended c routines. The default lib
file with the distrubution would not link.

2) IDLE and python crashes when trying to close an edit window that has
been opened in IDLE.

3) The help menu in IDLE, F1 key shows the default stderr color to be
dark green instead of red.
