For the meantime, you should search/file a bug report on Launchpad
(Ubuntu's bugtracker) on: if you haven't
already done so.

I just tried idle 2.6 (python 2.6, Tk 8.4) on Gentoo, and left-clicking
seems to run fine (although I'm a bit unclear on what kinds of
left-clicking IDLE refuses to respond to).

On the reports to Launchpad, don't forget to include the versions of
python, idle, and Tk as reported on Help > About.
