Most likely you have a non-default preference set (color or font) that
is causing the problem. IDLE and especially Tk on OS X has been known
to be vulnerable to this. To try working around it, open a terminal
session and rename the IDLE settings directory:
mv .idlerc idlerc-disabled
Then try relaunching IDLE. If that solves it, it would be nice if you
could open an issue on the Python bug tracker (http://bugs.python.org)
and attach to it the contents of the config files in the old
idlerc-disabled directory. There has been some fixes to IDLE since
2.7.3 to make it more resilient; those will be in 2.7.4 which should be
coming along in the near future.
