Not sure how to proceed. 

 

 





               

It is telling you that the Tcl/Tk on OS X 10.6 is buggy when used with IDLE.  
Go to ActiveState's web site and download their latest 8.5 installer for OS X 
and install it on your machine.  Restart IDLE and the message should no longer 
appear and your experience with IDLE should be much better.
