Strange things happens.

I've download the installer package for Mac of Python 2.6 and I've launched
it. When finished, I've launched from a terminal the command "Python" and
all worked fine The response was "Python 2.6 etc...". Now I've launched
IDLE. Nothing. IDLE icon blinked a couple of time in dock and then
disapeared. I've disabled any firewall in the system but the behavior was
the same. I've repared the privilege and restarted the system. 
A disaster. The system was dramatically slow and IDLE was still not
starting. Then I've reinstalled Python 2.5.2 an all was working fine again
(included IDLE and System speed).  

What is wrong with Python 2.6 on my system (MacOS X 10.4.11 PPC)?
