Try de-selecting the startup option "Enter interactive mode after 
script". This problem was present in 1.5.2c and based on your 
description it may well still be present in 2.0. (For a one-time test, 
run the interpreter with the option key down. For a longer-term 
solution, run EditPythonPrefs.)

Warning: Tk is not fully functional in MacPython 2.0 -- file events are 
broken. Stick to MacPython 1.5.2 for now if you need file events.
