Untangling pythonWin and IDLE Processes on XP Pro

 From Diez above.
What does *NOT* work is writing a Tkinter-based app in idle, and to run it
*FROM INSIDE* idle. Instead, open your explorer and double-click on the
pyhton-file your app is in. That's all that there is to it.

So this is the absolute truth? No wiggle room? One can never use a Tkinter 
program with IDLE, and execute it successfully. So IDLE doesn't issue a 
standard warning that says, "Get out of here with your Tkinter program, it 
will fail when you try to run it here. You have entered Tkinter hell.
