Ah yes, this is something that erks me daily, but i seem to have
forgotten about it until you brought it up (Thank you!). I must put
this on the rIDLE bug list. It's these tiny annoyances that really
ruin IDLE. It's noting major, but you know what a thousand paper-cuts
can do... With a little spit shine IDLE could be quite wonderful.

You guys will see a much improved IDLE very soon, i can promise you
