Users report that recent versions of ActiveTcl's Cocoa build work quite well with IDLE--a lot of bug fixing has gone on with both Tk and Tkinter's integration of the Cocoa version of Tk.

The crashes also happen with the latest ActiveState build of TkCocoa.   As an example you could try to run a script using F5.  I have a workaround for that, which I really need to commit soon, but the root cause of the crash is a bug in TkCocoa.
