IDLE under Cygwin doesn't show toolbar menu

Just downloaded and installed the latest Cygwin distribution which
includes python 2.3.4. IDLE runs fine but for some reason the toolbar
menu doesn't show up.
Like, by default, it starts shell window, but no toolbar. If I type


it brings both shell and editor windows, but once again, no toolbar on
either window -- which renders the edtior quite disfunctional.

Just want to check if anyone else ever ran into this problem and what
was the workaround -- before I contact Cygwin folks.
