When I ran it that way, I got a raft of warnings about a "problem
retrieving theme element 'builtin-forground'" from the colour theme that I
had set up, then IDLE actually came up. After deleting my colour theme, I
tried running IDLE in the usual manner (via the shortcut or by opening a
.PY file in it), and it worked.
(It's rather curious that, even after uninstalling version 2.4.3
completely, my theme was preserved when I installed 2.5.)
