Ah, I guess the -3.4 isn't valid.

$ python3 --version
Python 3.3.5

$ python3 -m test -ugui test_tk test_ttk_guionly test_idle
[1/3] test_tk
[2/3] test_ttk_guionly
[3/3] test_idle
All 3 tests OK.


$ python3.4 --version
Python 3.4.1

$ python3.4 -m test -ugui test_tk test_ttk_guionly test_idle
[1/3] test_tk
[2/3] test_ttk_guionly
[3/3] test_idle
All 3 tests OK.

In both cases, some small, yellow windows flash briefly on the screen.
