...hey guys, I posted this over on the Ubuntu forums with no luck. I'm
running Ubuntu 9.10 and python 2.5. In Idle when I type in a function
I get this error...

>>> Exception in Tkinter callback
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/lib-tk/Tkinter.py", line 1417, in __call__
    return self.func(*args)

    return tuple(map(getint, self.tk.splitlist(string)))

...I've tried reinstalling, and am not sure where to go from here. I
also get a 2nd small windows about 2X2" with 'idle' in the title, and
nothing in the box, and I cannot use the mouse if I open a Python
program from Idle. Any ideas?
