Using OS X 10.5.5
Python 2.5.1

IDLE was working, then all of a sudden, the window size went off of
the screen.... could not resize it.  I closed IDLE and rebooted and
now IDLE will not start.  Below is the Traceback

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/Current/bin/

    (widgetName, self._w) + extra + self._options(cnf))
_tkinter.TclError: bad screen distance "60gill"

Any assistance in getting this back up and running would be great

Thanks
