I can strongly recomend pythonWin. The editor is somewhat better than 
idle, and does not have as many issues.

Even though I have found that I get the least trouble at all using 
Ultraedit under windows. Which I have set up to execute the current 
pythn file when I press CTRL+SHIFT+0. The output then pops up in another 
editor window.
