Thanks, I don't know anything about threading at the moment but I'll 
look into it.

BTW, another problem: whenever I call a widget.quit() method, the widget 
in question crashes. IDLE carries on working but the widget window stays 
there, not responding, and if I tell my OS to kill it then IDLE 
restarts. Is this a bug? I'm using Windows 7 and Python 2.6.4.
