a curious IDLE Error

I'm not sure this error is of note, but it was curious to me (a puzzle).
Windows 2000, Python 2.3, using IDLE file editor and shell
I had a small script which imported string and worked fine until I added a
std. input line:
It opened IDLE and died with error:
'tuple' object not callable
I closed the IDLE shell, re-ran the module, which opened a new IDLE shell
and repeated the same error. Did this many times.
I opened a separate instance of Python (IDLE shell) and tried the raw_input
function: it ran fine.
I ran my module at the Windows command prompt, and it ran fine.
I opened a new Python shell from the instance of IDLE editor where my
module was open and tried the raw_input():
>>> someFile=raw_input("enter: ")
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<pyshell#36>", line 1, in ?
TypeError: 'tuple' object is not callable
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Apologies for the lack of proper analysis, I am all ears.
