Weird idle behavior for GUI apps

Platform: Windows ME
Python version: 2.3.2-1
Problem: Running GUI apps in Idle does not work.
When executing GUI (tkinter/pmw) apps from the edit windows or doing
an "import <file>" in the shell window GUI apps freeze and do not
respond to internal widgets or window decoration. They also do not
repaint. Only way to bail out is to restart the interpreter. Same
apps work fine from DOS window or double-clicked in file manager.
These apps also still work in Python 2.2 environment (still installed)
Character-based apps seem to work fine.
Anyone seen this before?
