[Pythonmac-SIG] Python IDE 2.3.2 problems

I need to use Python IDE (http://homepages.cwi.nl/~jack/macpython/) to teach programming fundamentals to beginners at the university of Paris 8, France.
When moving from Jaguar to Panther I downloaded the "MacPython 2.3 for Panther addons" from :
1. Even the simplest code won't work in the IDE if I don't check the "Run as __main__" option, else it wouldn't find the interpreter, displaying an alert: "can't find command line Python", although there's a "Python interactive" window that behaves as expected. How do I patch the program so it searches /usr/local/bin/ to find either the python interpreter -- or the pythonw interpreter, which I actually want to use?
2. When I need to run a program that should use the "Tkinter" module (I'm running Tickle 8.4.4) I can only briefly see the widgets I've created -- then the IDE, and my application as well, vanish, quit with no alert, no warning, no nothing... However, when I use the Python Launcher (v2.3 by Jack Jansen) to launch that very same program, everything works okay. What's wrong with my installation?
3. A quick search for Tkinter will yield:
So obviously, migrating from Jaguar to Panther had the side effect of duplicating some files from my previous installation. How shall I clean that mess, what should I remove, and where do these files really belong?
I tried to install a fresh system (no Python IDE) on another partition and the Tkinter files only exist in the /System/Library/Frameworks/... path, but installing the IDE there doesn't make it work as expected either (and there's no "_tkinter.so" file any longer).
Can anybody, please, help me to solve problems 1, 2 and 3?
Thanks in advance.
