same on Windows, but it often appears *beneath* the window you're typing
into, so you have to look for it in the task bar.
this also relies on Python being able to keep the Tkinter event loop
going behind the scenes; different command-line implementations have
for example, on Windows, the event loop runs only when you're at an
empty Python prompt; as soon as you start typing the next command, the
interpreter switches over to "text input mode", and the event loop is
paused until you press return.
