No, the above is a bug fix that did not make it into rc1 but has now
been committed. It arose because the interface of a class in one of the
modules was changed from .set_var(val) to .var = val and the need to
change IDLE was not caught. I imagine that checking that IDLE runs in
not in the test suite.
