... never seen this behavior in IDLE with a .py file; not even once.

I take that back... there was the time I tried to run IDLE on the mac 
mini with Apple built-in tcltk on Snow Leopard... 'till I found out that
tk on the mac is not stable with the built-in tcltk... which I found 
very suspicious for Apple's part...

... by the by, if I down-load tcltk from sources and recompile, along 
with Python32 from sources, will things be stable on the mac??

kind regards,
