Are you running 3.4.0? This was a 3.4 regression that was only reported 
to occur if one opened Idle with a editor window and closed without ever 
running it.  This was fixed in
but I believe too late for 3.4.0.  If you see this with 3.4.2 (strongly 
recommended, especially forthcoming OSX) or even 3.4.1, please add a 
note to the issue with exact details -- how start, what do, how close.
