One more test, but after selecting "Modules Doc" from the start menu.  

The small pydoc window shows up, "Python documentation server ..." etc. 
Clicking the X button results in a "pythonw.exe Application Error" with

Same Window XP SP2 machine running Python 2.3.4 downloaded from the
Python website (with just one extension, wxPython
