Nothing stupid about that, although it should have worked!
Did you get the MacPython version or the ActiveState Mac package or 
something else?

Me too,  its a long time since I played Python on my Mac and it never 
did anything like that. But we do have a few Mac users so maybe they can 

If you are a Mac programmer check out the Python integration with XCode 
and Cocoa BTW, it works pretty well...
