It's because your file never got closed. When you ran the script from
the terminal, your file was automatically closed when outCSV was
garbage collected. When you ran your script in IDLE outCSV was still
a live variable, so it wasn't garbage collected automatically. Since
you never told it to close the file, there was still data sitting in
the buffer waiting to be written.
