What the heck? open() requires an integer?

The open() function is returning me a strange error.
An attempt to create an output file with
f = open("output.txt","w")
yields the following error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<interactive input>", line 1, in ?
TypeError: an integer is required
That happens when I am using either Pythonwin or
IDLE 0.8, but not in interactive mode. In this latter
case I can open, write to and close a file OK.
What's the matter? Thanks in advance!
