Another data point:

For me it ran seemingly ok in an NT4 console window, but with idle it acted weird,
and I couldn't capture the session screen (oops, maybe Ctl-C is no good for that there)
Anyway, the Quit button changed to depressed look, and then was stuck visible but not responding.
I had to kill it with task manager. Then idle printed a -----restart----- line.
