This is a known bug, that will be fixed in a future release. The  
problem is that there are so many files under your Scripts folder that  
the IDE runs out of menu entries and crashes. The workaround is to put  
less files in your Scripts folder. What may have happened during your  
fiddling is that you've set the scripts folder to something like your  
home directory. Reset the IDE preferences by removing  
"~/Library/Preferences/Python/PythonIDE preferences" and things should  
start working again.
