We are quite aware of the problem but cannot directly do anything about 
it as the problem is with tcl/tk and Apple. A couple of days ago, Kevin 
Walzer wrote on an IDLE-sig post "I'm currently reviewing an updated 
patch to address the problem. When I commit the patch, it will go into 
both Tk's trunk and in the Cocoa 8.5 backport, and eventually be 
available through ActiveState's distribution."
