Not an IDE, but it's running in an embedded interpreter. Which is why
I looked there for issues, but I can't find any. (Checking sys.version
and friends shows that it's the same version of Python either way.) I
described the embed environment above, in the hopes that someone would
spot an "obvious error", and if your instant suspicion is an IDE, then
that's probably it.
