You can turn it off by editing IDLE's extension config file. In case of
Python 2.3 on Windows XP, make a file named "config-extensions.cfg" under
.idlerc directory, which would be under your home directory. And write:

enable = 0

It would be nice to make this configurable in the configuration dialog.
Perhaps you must submit this one as a feature request?
