So, specifically, the issue is that if I enter these commands:

import Tkinter
tl = Tkinter.Toplevel()

I get different behavior depending on whether Idle is running with 
subprocesses (normal) or without subprocesses (with the -n). With 
subprocesses, the only way that I have figured out to make the window 
appear is to issue:


but then I loose the ability to enter commands in the Idle window.

Is there code that will make Tkinter run the same (and show the window) 
under both versions?
